Ahed Tamimi



There is a 16-year-old girl –


A Palestinian –


Waiting for fate

To enter the room

As soon as the lights

Go out


When the dark hearts beat

With the silence it takes

To ignore


Her screams.






Ben White

Author of the books, Buddha Bastinado Blues and The Kill Gene, Ben White thought he was a poet, only to find out he is not a poet at all. He is a witness. What he writes is testimony.
