New Release Seahorses


by Abayomi Animashaun

Abayomi Animashaun writes poignantly about the bittersweet experience of immigrants and refugees, the Others in the “new paradise” that is America. For many, this land of opportunity has become a land of hostility, where survival means wearing a “demure smile [that]// Signals nothing/ Of the old city within.” But sometimes even this mask cannot guarantee inclusion or security. Fortified by insight and imagination, the poems in Seahorses mine those moments of injustice in order to find clarity about the troubling time we live in.
