At times rhapsodic, at times elegaic, Junious Ward’s Sing Me a Lesser Wound parses Southern masculinity and interrogates the concept of home as a place we have to leave—and sometimes spend the rest of our lives looking for.

Includes the poems “Like Prophets of Baal,” “I Know When K-Ci Sings Forever My Lady,” “The Field White for  Harvest but the Neighbors Saw Nothing,” “Heavy,” “Inheritance,” “Homecoming, Rich Square, NC,” “The Makers,” “Etymology of Boy,” “If Being a Man Allowed for Emotion,” “I Love the Hometown I Had to Leave,” and “Bonfire.”

Junious Ward is a poet living in Charlotte, NC, who has attended the Bread Loaf Writers’ Conference, Callaloo, The Watering Hole, and the Tin House Winter Workshop. He is a National Poetry Slam champion and Individual World Poetry Slam champion who has toured nationally. Junious’s poems have appeared in Four Way Review, Crab Fat Magazine, and Lackadaisy Literary Magazine.
