Journeying widely across temporal and geographical lines, Laboni Islam’s work relights the languages, stories, and histories that we inherit, especially from the women in our families. Trimming the Wick explores the entangled pasts of countries, delving into personal and collective human memories that are ‘deep and stratified’, whilst being equally attuned to the more-than-human natural world. Elegant and compelling, these poems consider the responsibilities we have to those closest to us and to our planet.
