Love is a very long word explores the parallel, ambiguous realms of freedom and love -- much coveted yet unnatural states of the human mind. Combining the tradition of Balkan lyricism with narrative modernist techniques, these bold poems witness the cross-cultural world of their subjects -- from wounds to hope, struggle to wry triumph. The striking cover image for Love is a very long word is by photographer Marsida Lekaj.
We sang a very hard song / for the cords of our throats. / The sounds were fragile, / the classroom walls were cold. / In our hearts a bee was buzzing.
