"After loitering in peeling hands, and resting
in piles of black eyes, Fatima harvested the language
of paper boats, and manufactured her own smile."
Revealing a surreal sense of personal history, these short poems collage together confessions of emotional apex. Odd, unsettling, and strange activities occur next to romantic, tender, and loving acts. A curious linguistic discomfort arises from these imaginative bursts that the author divines from a higher natural power, from a muse named Fatima. Selected from an ongoing writing project, these texts are a preview of a larger body of work that gestures towards the family that one is given and the family that one chooses.
