Warsan Shire

This collection of poems by the Somali-British Poet, Warsan Shire is beautifully crafted with expressive language and styles. The poetic forms used –incantations, chants and spells– are fitting for her far-reaching subjects. Shire’s poems are revelatory, unforgettable, profoundly moving, and bring a new understanding to those “who have a compassionate heart.”
— They are to be savored slowly! —
