I love Suheir Hammand. She's an amazing poet and performer.
One of the things I find interesting is how similar the first video she reads here is to another poem I saw her read, which ended with "this war drum ain't louder than my breath." I'm curious is this first poem is the same poem I heard read, but revised.
I also enjoyed listening to her when she wasn't reading poetry. I hate to admit it, but the few times I have performed my poetry, I have totally spent more time on my outfit than I should have.
