What is political poetry and linguistic activism? What does it mean to bear witness through writing? When language proves insufficient, how do we find and articulate a pathway forward?
Dear God. Dear Bones. Dear Yellow. interrogates, subverts, and expands these questions through poems that are formally and lyrically complex, dynamic, and innovative. With rich intertextuality and an unwavering eye, Noor Hindi explores and interrogates colonialism, religion, patriarchy, and the complex intersections of her identity.
Featuring her widely circulated poem, “Fuck Your Lecture on Craft, My People Are Dying,” this book is an incomparable force of fury and precision from a powerful and unstoppable poet. Noor Hindi’s collection is ultimately a provocation: on trauma, on art, and on what it takes to truly see the world for what it is/isn’t and change it for the better.
