This book won’t teach you how to get rich quick. But it will teach you how to live well on a relatively low wage. From Millennials to Baby Boomers, many people struggle living paycheck to paycheck. In today’s society, workers have less rights and benefits, while more and more cobble together multiple jobs in the gig economy. If wages are low or unreliable and living expenses are ever on the rise, how can you survive or even thrive with what you have?
The fifty poems contained within this slender volume span the lightyears between love and revolution, melancholy and joy, surrender and resistance. In this phantasmagoric collection, you will discover a kaleidoscopic menagerie of imaginative poetry to dazzle and delight the senses, a prismatic spray of color against a void black banner of insurrection. Settle in. Enjoy.
Salaam Mish Hon Mish El Yom (Peace, not here, not today) is a collection of graphic illustrations by Dezeray Lyn spanning her time as a member of the International Solidarity Movement in the Israeli military controlled section of H-2 occupied Al-Khalil (Hebron) in the West Bank of Palestine in the Fall of 2015 – a time many are calling the beginning of the Third Intifada.
In this quirky collection of tales, monsters who’ve traditionally crept from dark corners, rolling fog and eerie woods to frighten us are living through the grave realities we face. A shape-shifting military leader is locked in endless war, a zombie fights to subvert land development of the cemetery, and a mummy nurses forgotten plague patients in a crumbling almshouse.
Rage against oppression, opposition to authority, anticapitalism, and compassion for others are woven throughout this book of poetry. At once both fiercely heretical and deeply (albeit secretly) reverent, these poems are tied together by the interlocking threads of love, resistance to conventional religion, and revolution.
