"When I was a child I spoke as a thrush, I
thought as a clod, I understood as a stone,
but when I became a man I put away
plain things for lustrous, yet to this day
squat under hooves for kindness where
fetlocks stream with mud - shall I never
get it clear, down in the soily waters."
Denise Riley, "Say Something Back"
Find this and more new #poetry in the #newbooks section of the library!
"I found Borne on a sunny gunmetal day when the giant bear Mord came roving near our home...
Borne was not much to look at that first time: dark purple and about the size of my fist, clinging to Mord's fur like a half-closed stranded sea anemone. I found him only because, beacon-like, he strobed emerald green across the purple every half minute or so.
Come close, I could smell the brine, rising in a wave, and for a moment there was no ruined city around me, no search for food and water, no roving gangs and escaped, altered creatures of unknown origin or intent."
--Jeff Vandermeer, "Borne"

"O beloved, you are dying of a broken heart. The women wail in the street. The rice is scattered and the lentils split. The good linen is trampled. The wadi runs with tears. In what language did you tell me that all we loved was a dream? I don't dream in Arabic anymore--I don't dream at all."
--Jennifer Zeynab Joukhadar, "The Map of Salt and Stars"
This is a story of Syria, its people, and the violence that forces them to flee. This is also the story of Rawiya, a girl from the 12th century who disguises herself as a boy to become an apprentice mapmaker. Find it in the #newbooks section of the library. #syrianrefugees #comingofage
