Poetry Jukebox Request Time – Leen Hashem @leenhashem

Poetry Jukebox is an on-street audio installation of poetry. This poem is by Beirut poet Teen Hashem. It was included in Hour by Hour. We hope we can tour this curation to Centre Culturel Irlandais. It was originally included in Outburst Festival, and was co-curated  with Paul Maddern. It is, so far, the only poem we have had in Arabic. Leen raised the roof of the Sunflower Bar in Belfast when she read this ‘live’ at the launch event.

Frida Kahlo’s Flowers

 

You have to supply your own choice of music……. but, in other news, here is a slide show movie of many of the Frida Kahlo photos. She really doesn’t like Sweet William, but apart from that, she looks good with so many of the other flowers.

Enjoy.

Let me know what music you suggest.

Afterlife

The marshes have filled themselves

with wetness and bird song

since they were left alone.

The Basran reed warbler breeds

deep in Mesopotamian banks,

the original garden of Eden.

Each dusk, birds with dark eyestripes

flash amber shadows low

over lakes and gleaming mud.

So many species are flourishing,

the African darter, the sacred ibis –

one day women in libraries, flocks of singing girls.
