Some of the most successful poems in the collection are odes and elegies to Motown in which she employs formal technique and innovation such as the tercet rima, ghazal, limerick, and a crown of sonnets, just to name a few. We have stood alongside the speaker through scrapes and brutal encounters. We have watched again how she survives and flourishes. It is a cathartic poem, allowing us to stand along side the speaker as she forgives the past while mourning what was lost: the selves we lose along the way as we become who we are meant to be.
In the end , Shoulda Been Jimi Savannah neither allayed nor justified my original fears.
