— nayyirah waheed
The poems in this collection are startling. I encounter them again and again, find myself in different poems at different ages. The beauty of salt. is in how it lingers — how it remains in the peripheries of your-mouth-your-heart-your-mind. I find myself reciting them like breaths while I do the dishes — while I pick mustard flowers from the edge of the park — while I play with a coil of my sweetheart's hair — bounce my little sister on my hip. I whisper the words to myself to others because it is a world not re-imagined but created. salt. is a world created. A terraform of languaging that is so wonderfully nayyirah's, that so wonderfully erases the E of -nglish, to bring words home — again and again and again.
