Salt by Nayyirah Waheed

Salt is a journey through warmth and sharpness. This collection of poetry explores the realities of multiple identities, language, diasporic life & pain, the self, community, healing, celebration, and love.

This is my first time reading the poet.

I absolutely loved this collection of poems. The style of the poet is different from the stuff I tend to gravitate towards but all the better for being different.

The poems are short, for the most part, use a lot of imagery and tend to focus on very emotive themes.

I enjoyed every single poem. This collection was a treat.
