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.
