ABOUT THIS BOOK
At home or driven from home. Doors opening or shut fast. Migrants, immigrants, refugees. People moving and being moved. The poems in From Everywhere A Little: A Migration Anthology touch on all that. They will touch and move you, too. The journey may be dangerous—“Hide money in your shoe or in your underpants”—and the goal uncertain—“You can’t tell if the taste is bitter or if you’re tasting something sweet.” These poems urge us to pay heed to all this movement and as we do, “Brother, sister traveler, become an oracle.”
