Poems to Read and Love: Salt by Nayyirah Waheed

A short summary of the book Salt:

Poetry, to the point.

My favorite poem from the book:

"
where
you are,
is not
who
you are.
-circumstances
"


Questions I pondered while reading Salt:

How deep is brevity?

Do you have to be long-winded to be empowered?

My thoughts about Salt:

In the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. there is a drink, The Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster, said to feel like having your brains smashed out by a slice of lemon wrapped around a large gold brick.

Her poems are like that drink.

It's a great sensation.  Try it and see.
