Sana Sana (Paperback)
After ten years of performing her spoken-word poetry, Ariana Brown gathers her favorite poems in her chapbook Sana Sana. With a tender and critical voice, she explores Black girlhood, the possibilities of queerness, finding your people, and trying to survive capitalism. All are explored as acts of different kinds of love-for self, for lovers, for family, for community. Brown's collection refuses singularity, insisting on the specificity of her own life and studies. As she writes toward her own healing, Brown asks readers to participate in the ceremony by serving as witnesses. Sana Sana, colita de rana, si no sana hoy, sana en la ma ana.
