In Alycia Pirmohamed's debut collection, Another Way to Split Water, language unfolds into unforgettable and arresting imagery, offering a map toward self-understanding that is deeply rooted in place.
A woman's body expands and contracts across the page, fog uncoils at the fringes of a forest, and water in all its forms cascades into metaphors of longing and separation just as often as it signals inheritance, revival, and recuperation.
These poems are a lyrical exploration of how ancestral memory reforms and transforms throughout generations, through stories told and retold, imagined and reimagined. It is a meditation on womanhood, belonging, faith, intimacy, and the natural world.
