About this product
- DescriptionThe unclaimed dead lay waiting
maybe in the same way you wait
for a bus or I wait for
an important phone call.
Most of all they just wait to hear
someone, anyone will call out their names.
In Poetry for the Dead gdgranger does indeed finally call out their names.
In today's world of death, political gecide, mass graves and human indifference, the poet asks, who's watching all this human suffering? What can we do, individually, but also as a nation to make a difference in a world full of hate and injustice?
There may be easy answers, but through her poetry, gdgranger asks the questions that helps us look more deeply for the solutions that can make the world a safer place for all of humanity.
Her poetry is t abstract. It breathes with the personal and overwhelming anguish of victims in a world of war, unnecessary suffering and political corruption.
Lovely are my beloved's bones against
the desert sand, barely visible
to the naked eye, his bones shimmer
and I can still taste his pomegranate lips.
Our world is full of contradictions and oppositions. In it, the beautiful and the ugly, the good and the evil, the truth and the lie compete and coexist. Through the richly figurative language of poetry, gdgranger pursues justice in its aesthetic, historical and moral forms. Beyond art for art's sake, it is social change that guides her creations.
