tevere: Jihae, solemn with hint of smile (Default)
[personal profile] tevere
I recently reviewed Shailja Patel's poetry collection Migritude over in my journal, but at [personal profile] dhobikikutti's request I'm cross-posting here one of my favourite poems from the collection. Patel is a Kenyan Asian now living in the US, and her poetry and performances concern the lives and experiences of migrants, particularly women of colour. (If anyone has had the opportunity to see one of her live performances, do please share your thoughts!) Apologies to those who have seen this post before.
