Rhythm in My Blues is a collection of poetry aimed at connecting with the reader on a mental, spiritual, and sensual level. Whether via classic rhyme, lyric, or free verse, the poems in this book possess such distinctive wordplay and clever musicality that they unlock the readers' imaginations, giving them permission to smile, laugh, or cry. Citing Langston Hughes, Nikki Giovanni, and Maya Angelou as some of his greatest influences, Damon E. Johnson has delved deeply inside his own soul and found the words that truly display his creative expression. His words are like a song unfolding in your ears. Indeed he reminds us that there is genuine beauty in the eyes of a poet.
