For anyone who’s ever suffered from (actual) Writer’s Block, you’ll know that writing, to a standard you as an artist are happy with, is no easy feat. Sometimes it flows, sometimes it doesn’t.
So when we heard that London Based, Somali poetess Warsan Shire has published one poem for every DAY of April? psh! The hats came off.
Venture over to Warsan’s Blog and read these poems and you’ll see these are no throw away pieces and fortunately quantity doesn’t diminish the rich quality. A deeply expressive poet is She. Beautifully equipped to take us through a series of emotive, raw pieces covering abuse, identity, love & language. Some poems multi-faceted labyrinths, others simplistic ditties. All beautiful.
