"Poetry can be composed as quickly as a news story, and yet it resists the language of normalized oppression, searching for ways to help us see past the dulled passive voice of contemporary news coverage.” (from the introduction)

(Some poems were originally written in English, others have been translated into English from Arabic and French)
