Overview

Step into the crater of East Africa and meet the grain of sand from Sindh. Eat pearls from Indian Ismaili ginans and attend to the True Guru. Aglow with post-colonial loss, wryly defiant of what they are admitting, the poems in Kabir?s Jacket Has a Thousand Pockets describe a warm estrangement and salty gratitude for being on Earth. It?s not war-reporting and Ayaz doesn?t solve crimes. He doesn?t have his head in the lion?s mouth. He draws from Kabir?s Bijak, Ghalib, and the oral granth and ginan tradition to plot a lifelong and generational immigration.

Ayaz Pirani

Ayaz Pirani was born in Musoma, Tanzania. He grew up in Canada, where he studied Humanities in Toronto and Montreal, and studied Fine Arts at Vermont College. He spends time between Canada and California.

Reviews

"Wisdom poetry has seldom seemed as surprising or sly as it does in the hands of Ayaz Pirani."--David Rivard
