Poet Suheir Hammad : “Fear the Unexploded”

Few poets get this kind of glitzy audience. Suheir Hammad earns it.

via TED: “Poet Suheir Hammad performs two spine-tingling spoken-word pieces: “What I Will” and “break (clustered)” — meditations on war and peace, on women and power. Wait for the astonishing line: “Do not fear what has blown up. If you must, fear the unexploded.””
