Journeyman, bon vivant and poet Saeed Jones' work teases the complexities of manhood and the points at which sex, race and power collide. His debut collection, "Prelude to Bruise," is a song from the tightrope, balancing ecstatic existence and the chaos that threatens to engulf life on the margins. How do we reckon our past without being ravaged by it? How do we use people and their bodies to express ourselves?
