Parinaz Fahimi

This poem is from Parinaz Fahimi’s posthumously published collection “Poppies with Alef”. Parinaz was a student in architecture at the university of SOAS in London, where she died of a brain tumour in 2016. She had always written poetry and wrote a lot more towards the end of her life; sadly she never saw her dream of being published come true in her lifetime. The collection was published in Iran some years later with high praise and an introduction by Ebrahim Golestan.
