The Streets Have Spirits Too

Eslam Salama  |  Creative and Critical Writings  |  2020  |  Egypt
The project is a collection of 11 prose poems about streets and their conditions, which lends streets a human character and attempts to reveal their sufferings in their imagined conflict with society. In their attempt to contemplate the social changes that occurred in our societies, the poems present some personal cases experienced by certain individuals, which lean on the streets in order to display the pain or aspirations of these cases.
