Description

My favorites were “Golden Lube,” “Mansplain Nation,” “Rumi,” “This One’s with Teeth,” “What 9/11 Did to Us,” and “Belonging. Simultaneously, this compilation unpacks the contentious relationship that exists between Ro´isi´n and her mother, her platonic and romantic heartbreaks, and the cognitive dissonance felt as a result of being so divided among her broad spectrum of identities. The thing is that those poems weren’t that great and the solipsistic emotional ones were her mediocre best. If Fariha Roisin does not want to be judged for how she looks than she needs to work on not judging others by the same stereotypes.

I cannot rate someone's life experiences, but I can rate their poetic language, arrangement, sensitivity, since all of them are publicly open.

I’m 50+ books into my Goodreads Challenge this year and this is easily the best thing I’ve read so far. I can't rate a life, and although I understood and resonated with some of the poems, or some bits of them, they don't speak about my own experiences. A lot of it hit me really hard—Fariha Roisin is not afraid to pack a punch, but there are also some really beautiful poems about self-love and empowerment.

Simultaneously, this compilation unpacks the contentious relationship that exists between Roisin and her mother, her platonic and romantic heartbreaks, and the cognitive dissonance felt as a result of being so divided among her broad spectrum of identities. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. I can tell the poems are really personal and meaningful to the author and others with a similar experience. I think the book will resonate with anyone who has had to fight to be accepted - whether it’s self-acceptance or acceptance from people/society. Publication dates are subject to change (although this is an extremely uncommon occurrence overall).

From ‘time means everything’ ( No therapy for him, years of body dysmorphia, depression, anxiety, suicidal ideation, feelings of disgust, self-loathing, tears and hysteria every time I see a goddam fucking child that could’ve been ours) to ‘je ne suis pas folle’ ( why is it that as women we have to validate our stories? n and her mother, her platonic and romantic heartbreaks, and the cognitive dissonance felt as a result of being so divided among her broad spectrum of identities.

Her hope is that “the more honest we are with our bodies and our own limitations, the more accepting we become of difference. We read of her experiences of 9/11, her family’s experiences of wars undocumented on white media, of 1971. To be completely honest, so far I find myself finding bits and pieces of her works that are really nice; complimentary in a way. There were some stanzas and lines that were just not very good and read more like a tumblr rant than a thought-out piece of work. Some of the data that are collected include the number of visitors, their source, and the pages they visit anonymously.

I feel that if this were more condensed, without the filler tumblr-esque poetry, it would be a true gem. was a much-needed history lesson, ruminating on the year where the Pakistani army invaded Bangladesh, committing genocide of three million Bangladeshis. She’s also a pop culture fiend, casually dropping references to Heathers, Game of Thrones, and Harry Potter in amongst verses dealing with abortion, Islamophobia, and abuse. That being said i found some of these poems to be beautiful and captivating and others were perhaps a bit weaker and left me confused.
