If They Come for Us

If They Come for Us - Fatimah K. Asghar

This collection pulls threads from the past and weaves them into the tapestry of the present. Looking back at the past of nations, peoples, and her own family and self, Asghar speaks both to where we have been and where we are now. There is a melancholic beauty that echoes through these poems that can only come from loss and discovery. Honest, sparse, and meditative, I appreciated this collection for its heart and vision.
