Why Storms are Named after People and Bullets Remain Nameless
Author: Tanaya Winder
Publisher: CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform (2017)
The second collection of poems by Tanaya Winder.
"Ruthless with truth and sonic boomed with radiance, Tanaya Winder is sweet soul medicine."
–Richard Van Camp
In Why Storms are Named after People and Bullets Remain Nameless we find Tanaya Winder in the thick of a beautiful burn, where "pain demands to be felt," where joy or maybe something more decolonial than it bubbles up from the black hole of the past. Winder aims a sociological eye at the gun, the bullet, and the throttle so that we might together constellate differently. "like any good indian woman" is one of my favourite poems to date!”
"Gripping and radiantly moving testament of rezilience, healing, and defiance."
–Marcus Red Shirt
Why Storms are Named after People and Bullets Remain Nameless is a book for dreamers and survivors. Every verse of Winder's brings us out of the past and into the possibility and hope of the future.”
