There Are More Beautiful Things Than Beyonce

Tin house, 2017.

“So much soul. So much intelligence in how Parker folds in cultural references and the experiences of black womanhood. Every poem will get its hooks into you.”
Roxane Gay

"Like the "Fantastic Voyage" promised by R&B legends Lakeside, Parker's work is "live, live, all the way live." 
D.A. Powell

Other People's Comfort Keeps Me Up at Night

Switchback Books, 2015.

"...hilarious and hard-hitting, and it ripples with energy, insight and searing music."
Tracy K. Smith

"Morgan Parker’s both intellectual and concerned. There are piles of masterpieces here...She writes history and pleasure & kitsch and abstraction then vanishes like a god in about 13 inches and I mean that is really cool."
Eileen Myles
