Buy Robin Coste Lewis' 'Voyage of the Sable Venus' (2015) Robin Coste Lewis' Voyage of the Sable Venus and other poems (2015) — Lewis is the author of the poem "On the Road to Sri Bhuvaneshwari", (a favorite poem in The Best American Poetry 2016) is also in her this collection, but the book is named for the amazing 80-page poem at its heart:

What follows is a narrative poem comprised solely and entirely of the titles, catalog entries, or exhibit descriptions of Western art objects in which a black female figure is present, dating from 38,000 BCE to the present.

One of the best books read in 2016.
