Sensuous, angry, mystical, these poems forge a new bond between the personal and the political. Written by an Arab-American who identifies deeply with the tragedy of the indigenous peoples of the world, these poems are by turns soft and yielding, bitter and relentless. They capture all that is contradictory and humane in the American experience.
