Waheed's ability to express complex emotions and concepts in just a few words it is so mind-blowing. She describes the book as a "journey through warmth and sharpness. This collection of poetry explores the realities of multiple identities, language, diasporic life, the self, community, healing, celebration, and love." The last three points are what struck me; there is such beauty in the way much of this book focuses on not just surviving, but thriving. There is a hopefulness here- a kind of map for a way forward- that is so rare.
