Series from first manuscript with a working title of "The Terrorist", (a book of love poems):
This manuscript is unique as it is about a topic in current consciousness, terrorism, but it is book of poetry of unrequited love by an Arabic man. I used Arabic and French througout and will still need a formal editor - Ken Babstock will be editing my manuscript in the next couple of months.
My poems are uniquely set in between a natural and social landscape. I have used symbols from Egyptian history, birds, world geography including Canadian & Tunisian, love, sex, violence, anger, music, ekphrasis, rage, lust, longing. I do not seek to find answers, but simply went into this process unconsciously with brutal honesty and went into my self on a level I didn't even know was possible. I believe this is the process of individuation that Carl Jung termed in the early 20th century. It was excrutiating and exciting. I hope readers will find their own experience in my poems and feel great emotion, as I think all good art creates emotion.
