WHERE THE MEMORY WAS HIBAQ OSMAN
Split into three parts, Where The Memory Was, invites readers into a word full of blunt feeling and delicate poetics. Ranging in theme from inter-generational pain to reckless young love and battles with illness, these poems turn memory into a living aspect of our lives. These beautiful poems all cover the truths of a multi-layered identity and existing within structures, systems and histories that oppress. They range in theme from intergenerational trauma, love or lack of it and how our unique histories sometimes provide safety from the harshness of current reality.
