Discussion Board

While reading the poems this week, keep in mind how your positionality determines the way you navigate and connect with the poems. Choose one poem from this week’s readings that allowed you to make a certain connection with the content, and respond to the following question:

FYI: I am ARABIC and this must be 300 or more words!

Please choose from one of the following poems in order to do this assignment:
