Best Sellers


by Ishmail Kamara

“Sometimes / in the twenty-first century / while I was weak and thirsty / I couldn’t speak my own language // I could see but I was blind / roaming the streets / of a green desert city / seeking God’s face / but hard to find // Some other day / in the twenty-first century / I met an angel ….” (The Rich Man’s Empty Closet)

Smile is Ishmail Kamara’s first collection.
