Omar Sakr at the Melbourne Spoken Word Festival

I am unearthing yesterday, ungathering this bouquet of quiet, reappearing / in inches.” In this 2017 video, Omar Sakr reads his poem “Ghosting the Ghetto” at the Melbourne Spoken Word festival. Sakr won the 2020 poetry prize for Australia’s Prime Minister’s Literary award for his collection The Lost Arabs (Andrews McMeel Publishing, 2020).
