Switches, Hot Wheel Tracks, and Extension Cords by Tommy Domino
Switches, Hot Wheel Tracks & Extension Cords is a collection of poems, observations and spoken word pieces all written between the periods of 1997 to 2017. The concepts behind the title is based on common forms of punishment in the black community. Switches, Hot Wheels Tracks & Extension Cords is a journey in the cathartic process of carving a man’s soul on paper. This self-proclaimed bluesman masquerading as a poet, a reluctant performer, knits a tapestry of hard life lessons through dark corners not always leading to solutions, but exemplifies the redemptive healing process of prose. This work is a manifesto of a creative spirit breathing life into the struggles against; prejudice, inequality, ignorance and hypocrisy with the purpose of healing troubled souls.
