Gospel of the Dark Orisha is a recording, part testament, part confession, of what comes through us in the dream body when we do not edit out love, accident, appetite, or even death and surrender; when our ancestors breathe again through us, when we no longer quarrel with the body and all its gyrations toward wisdom and transcendence. We do all this while still lingering in the flesh.
“Reading Edward Bruce Bynum’s Gospel of the Dark Orisha is like entering an undiscovered planet in a parallel universe. There are juxtapositions that may disorient. There are verbs and adjectives never before encountered. The journey is mysterious and demanding. The experience will leave you breathless.”
—Howie Faerstein, author of Dreaming in the Rain and GOOGOOTZ and Other Poems
