For Poetry Month, I’d like to bring to your attention poets that I’ve loved.
Today, it’s Sheniz Janmohamed:

Her poetry: (excerpt)
They were banned from restaurants
drinking imported water and devouring choice cut steaks
from Masaai farmers tending cows in burnt grasslands
dining under sparkling chandeliers with generator power
Slapping down jeweled hands on mahogany tables
toothpicks teetering in their mouths as they laughed at
stammering waiters with holes in
