For My Lovers

Sunflowers. Bags. Splinters. The body. The bed. Old memories and spaces. The poems of Zizipho Bam deal with tactile things and physical objects that connect to self and the self’s multiplicity of selves. In this book, Bam as the poet and the visual storyteller convene to create a world where poetry and art can forge a path for healing one's self.

This is Bam's debut collection.
