The Soo-Rae Shirt

img_4483.jpg

Soo-rae and I decided to put some poetry to a silkscreen and make a shirt. We went to the library and found some poetry books, and sat around leafing through till we found a good one. We settled on this one, by the Syrian poet Adonis. His words end after the third line, and we felt we needed some kind of a stronger ending, so we put the last two lines on there.

“I am a book.

My blood is ink,

My limbs words,

Inside me, a thousand stories.”

Inny kitab, damy hibr, eDHai’y kelam, dakhily elfu hikaya.
