Hibaq Osman – The Heart Is A Smashed Bulb
Hibaq Osman releases a bittersweet anthology you must read.
Hibaq Osman is a Somali writer born and based in London. Her work centres women, identity and the healing process. I’ve been following Hibaq online for a number of years and it’s been wonderful watching her grow as a poet. Her words cut and soothe in equal measure.
The thing about blood
it reeks of metal
aren’t you sick of chains?
What a verse. Just wow.
