No Jewels is the first book from poet, singer & creative director Tai Allen. The chapbook narrates a young life that was loved well, loved wrong and, sometimes, not loved at all. Sadly, this tale is not an aberration or an oddity. There are numerous #NoJewels scenarios in every locale; and, there you find false-love victims who encounter abuse & control.

This book of lines, devices, spaces, forms and stanzas hopes to serve them all. The poems speaks of both the deeds and the emergence from them, with admirable self-love to preserve sanity and soul

Ambitious. But, possible.

Purchase the book, from Nkiru Online, and receive No Jewels: The Book Soundtrack, as a companion. (Page 49 in the book.)

The record is not a reading of the poems over music but an album of soul music inspired by the poems -- songs of revelation and emergence. And, of course, tunes that make you dance & nod your head!
