also libya by suheir hammad

also libya

no one tells you
if anyone does you do not listen anyway
if you do still you do not understand
no one tells you how to be free

there is fire in your neck
ocean in your ear
there is always your fear
the words you cannot even

no one is here
when the world opens upside
down you reach toward dawn
your weight on the earth changes

some of us plant deeper
others ache to fly

Hello there,

Thanks for sharing this link - but unfortunately it seems to be not working? Does anybody here at have a mirror or another source?

I'm not sure what you mean. There is no link. Are you unable to read the text altogether?
