Port of being

  • Date:

    The poems in Port of Being hold modern technology—surveillance, shipping, the Internet—to examine communication, migration, and identity. Preoccupied with the city, virtuality, reflexivity, and the ways we watch ourselves, Shazia Hafiz Ramji’s debut collection hums with wonder as it probes the human and non-human actors in our mouths and bodies, above and underneath the water, in the satellites and fibre optic cables that surround us all.
