POEM:Beatriz Miralles de Imperial, translated by Layla Benitez-James: “I write until my face is erased” – I write until my face is erased / only who I am no longer / can tell me
SECOND POEM:Nabina Das: Anima Writes a Letter Home (excerpt): Dear mother and father and old and young people of my home. Dear pets and weeds and flowers and footfalls. I write to you in a script speckled with time. I write to the language of a poet and many who chanted after her. I quote those verses which are laments, songs, praises, and warnings
QUOTE: Toni Morrison: If there’s a book that you want to read, but it hasn’t been written yet, then you must write it.
