Biography:

London-based Somali poet and writer, Warsan Shire is causing a stir on the poetry scene. Born in Kenya in 1988, the captivating young word weaver uses her deeply moving poetry to voice the silenced and misunderstood. In the form of poetry, short stories and memoirs, she writes about what she knows; asylum, war, addiction, love, loss, borders and insanity. According to Worldmakers.com Warsan Shire demonstrates "how artistic creativity is as much about growing, liberation and recreating history as it is about expression, sharing and story-telling."

The 2007 International Slam Champion has performed and toured extensively across the UK and North America., including at the famed Nuyorican Cafe in New York and alongside renowned HBO poet, Amir Sulaiman on The Dangerous Ideas Tour. 
 
Her first and much anticipated anthology is soon to be published by Flipped Eye, and she is also currently working on a play and a spoken word CD.

Auntie

your aunt gave birth
to still cities
hiroshima a cyst in her stomach
mogadishu a lump in her breast
everyone in your family
told her to
stop
loving
so hard
you won't find a man who wants
to kiss an atlas
dont map out stars on your back
like that
where you gonna find
a man who wants to join
your constellations with his tongue
push out falestine from under your
tongue xayati
let damascus drip from your neck
and wash out the havana of
your ribs
your dreams are too large
too big
stifling
they make everyone around you
hold their breath
what man wants a woman
covered in continents
teeth small colonies
stomach an island
what man wants to
watch the world
from his bedroom
face a small riot
hands a civil war
arms freckled
with an immigrants story home
behind your ears
a refugee camp
a body littered entirely
with ugly things

but god,
doesn't she wear the world well.
