The Lost Arabs | Omar Sakr
post image
Pickpick

After reading These Wild Houses I was excited to read more of his stuff, and this one is a solid collection of poems. There is a lot of searching for home, hinging on family trauma, queerness and a loss of homeland. But it also shows pockets of queer love between.

Every day we are learning
How to live with essence, not ease.
How to move with haste, never hate.
How to leave this pain that is beyond us
Behind us.
Just like a skill or any art,
We cannot possess hope without practicing it.
It is the most fundamental craft we demand of ourselves.

In memory of Martin Luther King who still was “climbin‘” decades after Langston wrote this poem.

Oh, this book really disappointed me. There were entire sections in it that were challenging for me, where I just didn‘t enjoy reading the poems, and I struggled to get through them. That said, I laughed out loud at the short story section, and the book‘s final section was really good too. Overall, the book felt uneven, and I wished I could have taken out some of the poems I didn‘t enjoy and had more that were like the ones I loved. ⭐️⭐️⭐️

The Lady of the Lake | Walter Scott
post image

#OnThisDay in 1826, printing company Ballantyne & Co crashed, bringing with it the fortunes of Sir Walter Scott. The company began in 1810, publishing Scott's wildly popular The Lady of the Lake. Initial success led to bad decisions in a bad economy, and ultimately the creditors they came a-calling. Scott's health and wealth never recovered. #HistoryGetsLIT

It's been such a good reading weekend for me! I've finished several books and graphic novels. Now it's time to crack down on some school work but I hope to carve out a few more hours with a book later.
