Part of Of Soil and Tongues

1739

Some say goodnight—at night—
I say goodnight by day—
Good-bye—the Going utter me—
Goodnight, I still reply—

For parting, that is night,
And presence, simply dawn—
Itself, the purple on the height
Denominated morn.

Poison

Poison, written by Nadia Anjuman in the Summer of 2001 in Herat, Afghanistan. 

I letterpress printed her original Farsi poem alongside an English translation by Diana Arterian and Marina Omar in September, 2015.  I printed this to honor all the women who have been murdered in Afghanistan and beyond in misogynist societies.
