"Honey Sequence" by Husnaa Hashim
"Honey Sequence is Youth Poet Laureate of Philadelphia Husnaa Hashim’s debut chapbook collection, published in collaboration with the Free Library of Philadelphia.
'These poems drip, stick, cluster around pain and then pull apart, leaving stains, slowly sending and turning over the earth as they bring in new, denser, and richer growth.'
—Raquel Salas Rivera, 2018-2019 Poet Laureate of Philadelphia and author of
lo terciario/the tertiary
'What a gift that this ‘really progressive Rumi,’ this ‘Black-idiosyncratic-Muslim-girlchild’ lives and breathes and creates in our own time.'
—Yolanda Wisher, 2016-2017 Poet Laureate of Philadelphia"
