Keeping Time with Blue Hyacinths

Poems

Sholeh Wolpé

Publication Year: 2013

Keeping Time with Blue Hyacinths, Sholeh Wolpé’s third collection of poems, is a surreal journey of sorrows and sins, of love, ghosts, and Saudi princes, of banishment inside one’s own skin. Wild in its leaps and images, these poems explore personal and psychological exile from a marriage, lovers, expectations, and finally, country.
