520    In the hands of Bruce Smith, devotions are momentary stops
       to listen to the motor of history. They are meditations 
       and provocations. They are messages received from the 
       chatter of the street and from transmissions as distant as
       Memphis and al-Mansur. Bulletins and interruptions come 
       from brutal elsewheres and from the interior where music 
       puts electrodes on the body to take an EKG. These poems 
       visit high schools, laundromats, motels, films, and dreams
       in order to measure the American hunger and thirst. They 
       are interested in the things we profess to hold most dear 
       as well as whats unspoken and unbidden. While were driving,
       while riding a bus, while receiving a call, while passing 
       through an X-ray machine, the personal is 
       intersectedsometimes violently, sometimes tenderlywith the
       hum and buzz of the culture. The culture, whether New York
       or Tuscaloosa, Seattle or Philadelphia, past or present, 
       carries the burden of race and 8220;someones idea of 
       beauty. 8221; The poems fluctuate between the two poles of
       8220;lullaby and homicide8221; before taking a vow to 
       remain on earth, to look right and left, to wait and to 
       witness.
