“Of earth, we see all.
Below, the many spines of Mesopotamia: her plates long buckled into mountain ridges, hoary and high; rivers and streams, silken kraits that line the land in silver and blue; the undulations of skulls buried beneath the desert floor, one after one after one, like the nodes in history’s back: benighted, elapsed, in dissolve.”
From The Age of Orphans, by Laleh Khadivi
