“Don’t look for shadow behind me
I carry it within
I live cycles of light and darkness
Rhythm is half silence
I see now i never was one and not the other
Sickness, health, tender, violence
I think now I never was pure” ~Suheir Hammad

Queer, Arab-American residing in Seattle, Washington. I like the smell of lentils boiling on the stove, awkward glances from strangers and pretending like I give a fuck.

Images from Lebanon Shot Twice, an incredible book by zaven kouyoumdjian recreating famous photographs and scenes from the Lebanese Civil War by tracking down the anonymous faces in the pictures 20 years later. See more pictures here and the book here.

Ah, the first photo is of the bus that ignited the Lebanese Civil War

The fact that I
am writing to you
in English
already falsifies what I
wanted to tell you.
My subject:
how to explain to you that I
don’t belong to English
though I belong nowhere else
