A whole 'notha kinda missing
In “a whole notha’ kinda missing”, spoken word comedian, Jonathan Samuel Eddie, offers readers a candid glimpse into black pop culture and lived experience. Each poem serves as both a hood soliloquy and tender reminder of growing up/existing black in today’s society. The entire collection, while some parts are somber and serious, reinforces that sometimes you have to laugh to keep from crying. The author leaves no rock unturned, delving into varied topics from the dissolve of the black neighborhood to the professional tardiness of Ms. Lauryn Hill to the characters you meet on late night trips to the corner store. This collection of poetry is brought to you by black joy having been here before and the beautiful remnants she’s left behind.
