Mohammed EL-KURD
for Carmel Hilal,
Home in my memory is a green, worn out couch
and my grandmother in every poem
every jasmine picked off the backlash
every backlash picked off the tear gas
and tear gas healed with yogurt and onions
with resilience
with women chanting and drumming
on pots and pans
with goddamns and hasbiyallah’s.
Motherfuckers work tanks but we know stones.
(2008 – The Gaza Bombings)
my ritual of watching T.V.
ran between the grieving
and Egyptian belly dance music
and I fluctuated between hatred and adoration
stacking and hording Darwish’s reasons to live
“On this land, there’s something which makes life worth living”
sometimes believing them.
sometimes dipping my bread in indulgence,
knowing a child is breadless, in Khan Yunis,
dipped in a roof’s rubble
If you ask me where I’m from it’s not a one-word answer,
be prepared and seated, breathless and geared
and if hearing about a world other than yours
makes you uncomfortable,
well, drink the sea
cut off your ears
blow another bubble to bubble your bubble and the pretense.
blow another town of bodies in the name of fear.
This is why we dance,
My father told me: “Anger is a luxury that we cannot afford.”
Be composed, calm, still – laugh when they ask you
smile when they talk, answer them,
educate them.
This is why we dance,
Because if I speak, I’m dangerous
you open your mouth,
you raise your eyebrows,
you point your fingers.
This is why we dance,
wounded feet but the rhythm remains
This is why we dance,
Because no matter how many adjectives you stack upon my shoulders
I define me
This is why we dance,
Because even my poetry isn’t free.
Now can you please just tell me:
Why is anger – even anger – a luxury
to me?

  1. Everywhere you look these days there are kids walking
    around with headphones within their ears and cellular phones in their hands.

    Gone are the days when you have to be resting
    in front of your computer screen so that to login to Facebook,
    MySpace, another social networking weblog. Now all it takes
    is a simple app download and a as easy as pie and you can update all of one’s
    profiles directly via smartphone while you’re waiting for the bus
    or standing in line at the grocery store.
    But, as with most things, there will be the good and the bad that comes with technology.
    However, I would really like to focus on the good; mainly how technology can ease the stress of traveling for
    mom and father.

    We know it’s not because Android users choose “the web”
    over apps. iOS conintues to dominate in web scanning.
    Plus, 10 billion app downloads — with the sanctioned Android
    app market — is a huge number. That should give you the chance to get
    up on its own as option monetization opportunity or promotion. But it does not.

    It was in the past we’d always be come plan things should be the kids from watching too much
    television. Now, we ought to keep the youngsters occupied in order that they won’t play too many video movie.
    Apps, shmapps. Let’s do something fun! Let’s
    make snowflakes.

    The iPad may be a little more powerful when compared to a
    iPhone it also is nice and clean of computer. Hence, any app which
    consumes too much power is clearly going to fall out of favor.

    An app which slows unit down won’t ever become widespread.
    Hence, you will also show to ensure you create iPad apps may compact, well written, bug free and which provide maximum features with minimum effort and space control.

    If that’s not the case, perhaps there’s something else that
    bugs owners. The machine may be locked down to
    certain applications needed in view of work – for example, there’s only MS Word, Internet Explorer, and
    the work App wish to. You try to 918kiss pc download something,
    it’s blocked they do not need you screwing along the system with viruses or junk.

    The apple iphone 4g was offered free, in replacement in the iPhone 3G with iOS 6 upgrade, and 8GB memory location. Now those who had new
    iphone 4 are not going for that iPhone 5 as they bought
    the iPhone 4 covers and accessories, which not
    at all match up with iPhone the. The two phones are completely and entirely very separate.

    It is in order to update the code of the app you have created on a regular basis.
    As web standards grow, you will should ensure your app is compatible almost all of websites and all possible technological
    posts. However, this should not even be a difficult task inside your have done any job with the main coding.
    Make sure the quality of programming does not let you down and pull around the efficacy of the
