Kyi May Kaung on Burma and Iraq
Read the poem Burmese poet in exile Kyi May Kaung wrote for the D.C. Poets Against the War reading at the Shepherd Park Library on November 8 here: http://kyimaykaung.blogspot.com/. How all war is inseparable from all other wars and dictatorships.
I'll be reading some poems by refugees and exiles at a conference on refugees and internally displaced persons at American University next week, November 27 at 4 pm. See the whole schedule here: http://washingtondc.craigslist.org/eve/231127960.html. The conference will include the screening of a short film by Lisa DiLillo called “Tongues Don't Have Bones” featuring poetry by Kyi May Kaung.
