Like a stone breaking the skin memory of water”
We absolutely love this debut collection Another Way to Split Water by Alycia Pirmohamed. These are poems of such poise and breathtaking beauty, of longing and belonging. Split across continents from Canadian prairies to Gujarati rain and Dar es Saleem, everywhere there is the bodily memory of water. Water as wound, as the “edge of waking”, as point of origin - “because she is a flood” - perhaps we all are.
We highly recommend complete immersion in this watery beauty of a book!
