Be Holding is a love song to legendary basketball player Julius Erving–known as Dr. J–who dominated courts in the 1970s and ’80s as a small forward for the Philadelphia ’76ers. But this book-length poem is more than just an ode to a magnificent athlete. Through a kind of lyric research, or lyric meditation, Ross Gay connects Dr. J’s famously impossible move from the 1980 NBA Finals against the Los Angeles Lakers to pick-up basketball and the flying Igbo and the Middle Passage, to photography and surveillance and state violence, to music and personal histories of flight and familial love.
