Definitions by Dennis Reed


DEFINITIONS is a poetic odyssey through the streets of South Jamaica, Queens, to the continent of Africa, to the University and back to home again.  The author chronicles the lives and deaths of his twenty-one relatives, searching for meaning in their survival and ability to thrive in hostile living situations.  Mr. Reed views the bloody history of the South and the quick up-tempo existence of New York City.  His poems sing a lyrical and soulful song, taking the reader on a journey through a universal world where color is commonplace. 


Mr. Dennis Reed is a New York City native and former member of the infamous poetry group, Bud Jones.  He has taught writing courses at Morehouse, William and Mary and Virginia Commonwealth University.  Mr. Reed is a novelist, playwright and memoirist.
