In Her Feminine Sign characters ✓ 109 characters µ E-book, or Kindle E-pub ´ Dunya Mikhail read & download In Her Feminine Sign In Her Feminine Sign follows on the heels of Dunya Mikhail's devastating account of Daesh kidnappings and killings of Yazidi women in Ira The Beekeeper It is the first book she has written in both Arabic and English a process she talks about in her preface saying The poet is at home in both texts yet she remains a stranger With a subtle simplicity and disuieting humor reminiscent of Wisla. Dunya Mikhail s In Her Feminine Sign is a nuanced meditation on restlessly seeking that which cannot be found made all too apparent to those whose homes have been razed to the ground Sifting through the rubble it becomes clear that one s boundaries identity and security have been forcibly confiscated The illusion of freedom is tinged with the realization that even in this modern world built on affirmations of eual opportunity self determination is very much a privilege and not a birthright For those who live in war torn countries the will of the world determines their course and they become its neglected subjects In her work birds and butterflies stand as common motifs representing this paradox of being unattached yet not liberated This then is how the map grew borders The birds don t know it yet leavingtheir droppings wherever they want Their songs like exiles might pass byanywhere There are no bordersin paradise neither spoils nor victors Paradise is Ama ar gi no victors at all Ira carries so much of human history from creating the first civilization the first written language and the first law Blending this rich history with disturbing images from the present the loss becomes poignant The stark contrast between an artistic rendering of ancient clay tablets and the shelled out buildings and mass graves that the world uses to define the country today forms the backbone of the collection which is in turns both tender and morose I am sorrymy poem will notblock the shellswhen they fallonto a sleeping town will not stop the buildingsfrom collapsingaround their residents will not pick up the broken leg flowerfrom under the shrapnel will not raise the dead Mikhail delivers an often harrowing glimpse of those in between spaces islanded by forces outside of one s control For the voiceless the outer world becomes a veil encircling them their true form appearing as a silhouette attempting to commune with the other side the corporeal world But which is the real ghost the voiceless or the indifferent This cloister of invisibility is well trodden by the displaced in which the inexpressible is lost in translation We are not deadand those are not our ghostsWe don t know where they came fromor where they are goingTheir shadows are as changeableas the moon s phasesand are not our shapes Their jinns floating over the watersare not our wars Their hollows are not our crackson the walls In our sleep they melt into one gesture What do they want to say And why every night in view of the stars do they diga hole for someone whose turn has come In Her Feminine Sign is a must read masterwork that defies the twin cruelties of oppression and apathy unraveling the layers of chaos to find the remnants of unwavering hope This collection poses a measured tactful protest against the injustices of the world reminding us that turbulent as it may be humankind has not yet lost its humanity The birds may still find their way home again
