About

“If I lingered over memories there would grow
on my forehead the grass of regret
& I’d grieve for something distant
& if I surrendered to desire
I’d adopt the legends of slaves
but I prefer to make a pebble of my voice
& a melody of the rock.”
-Mahmoud Darwish, from “Diary of a Palestinian Wound”

I am writing what I know.
