come see about me, marvin is accessible, honest poetry about and for real people. In the collection, brian g. gilmore seeks to invite the reader into a fantastical dialogue between himself and Marvin Gaye-two black men who were born in the nation’s capital, but who moved to the Midwest for professional ambitions. In trying to acclimate himself to a new job in a new place-a place that seemed so different from the home he had always known-gilmore often looked to Marvin Gaye as an example for how to be. These poems were derived as a means of coping in a strange land.
