Awake in the River

Awake in the River by Janice Mirikitani. 1978 Isthmus Press, unstated edition. Some wear to cover, bend at bottom corner, pages in very good condition. Activist and longtime poet laureate of San Francisco, Mirikitani wrote about being a Japanese American and internment. Maya Angelou has cited her as an influence.

"In our bodies

a terrible thunder

is building its nest."
