"Woe to the chained ones

and to the bead-wearers.

Woe to the Old Tribes,

fallen and gone.

Your heartbeat, my heartbeat,

our sorrow, our song…"

So goes the "Invocation", opening the very first poetry collection by Ankhesen Mié, her third release after a three-year hiatus. Originally entitled The Smith Sundial, Mié changed her mind when she wrote a poem inspired by the photo of a Maasai model. The poems are meant to mimic the various times of day, invoking the darkest and most turbulent hours to lighter, peaceful times.
