:: This Week's Word on the Street ::
“A lyric scientist at the top of her game, Samiya Bashir explores the emotional and cultural physics of desire, love, loss, family, history, and everyday existence in her new collection Field Theories.
These inventive poems move across a range of psychicscapes, recentering black voices and bodies through blackbody theory and quantum mechanics, backyard meditation and bedroom lament.
Bashir asks and shows with consummate artistry, what are the deep and hidden laws that divide and connect us?”
Author of Counternarratives, Seismosis, and Annotations.
