DEAR GOD. DEAR BONES. DEAR YELLOW.

Arab womanhood, migration, queerness and Palestine are navigated with striking lyricism and urgency in Noor Hindi’s defiant collection.

What is political poetry? How does history become lived experience? What does it mean to bear witness through writing?

Noor Hindi’s poems explore colonialism, religion, patriarchy and everything in between with sharp wit and innovative precision. Layered to reflect the intersections of her identity, while constantly interrogating this identity itself, her writing combines lyrical beauty with political urgency.

This collection is ultimately a provocation―on trauma, on art, on what it takes to change the world.
