I know, I know! A girl’s not supposed to say her age, or walk out on a job, or write a ghazal in one-line stanzas. But here you go: my poem “Waiting on Forty-Five (A Ghazal)” in the beautiful, Spring issue of The Common.
And, while you’re there, check out the amazing Arabic translation portfolio of stories from Sudan, the beautiful sonnet “Nocturne” by Ricardo Pau-Llosa, and so much more. It’s a great issue, all available for free online, for now!
