These poems are not about the revolutions and uprisings Mai'a Williams witnessed and participated in. They are in response to living them out. They are a record of how intimate a firefight can be. How hope can be more violent than a bomb. They are late night rituals, one of the few constants in a life that has been filled with tear gas and water cannons, knife fights and heartbreaks, babies still wet from birth and martyrs streaked with dried blood, marches and molotov cocktails and my daughter in the living room drawing pictures of unicorns and marching in circles, wearing fairy wings and yelling 'horreya!', 'freedom!' to an imaginary crowd. Mai'a Williams has worked as a writer and human rights worker in Mexico, Egypt, Palestine, and east Africa and Ecuador.
