    I've seen Anis Mojgani perform his poetry, some of which is included in this collection, and his mesmerizing performance is what made me buy this book. I don't know how to come at this review without that particular bias... it's possible that those who haven't heard him will not find it as amazing.

    But Mojgani is my favorite spoken word poet, and I love this collection. It's a mix of things I already knew (and you can find them on youtube), and poems that are new to me, and it's all powerful. The strength of his voice, which is confident and comforting and challenging, all while he manages to be humble in a profound way, is what keeps me coming back to reread these.
