I am amazed at how in just a few short words, Nayyirah c...

These poems prove how powerful words are, most of them are only 3 lines long, but they hit me like a 1000 page novel.

Salt. is a collection of poetry by Nayyirah Waheed. I wanted to know more about her and her life, but I didn't find anything. I guess we get to actually know her through her poems.

I talk about rereading this book in this reading wrap-up!
This is such a brilliant collection, filled with heart and meaning, all in such a limited amount of words. I'm amazed at how much Waheed can communicate on a couple of lines and in a handful of words. She captures entire experiences and com...
