Ana Beirut #8 Aline Ouais, 5:22, 2021


a Letter to Beirut by a citizen, who considers herself, a mother to a dying land.


“Her birds were everywhere. Her sea didn’t stop whispering to me. Her breeze revived the breath of my soul and her sun was burning like the land’s truth. Here, in the place of the massacre! Her silence hasn’t ceased to sedate my anger.”


الحلقة الثامنة: ألین عویس كانت طیورھا في كل مكان. لم یتوقف بحرھا عن الھمس لي. ھوائھا رد لي نفس روحي. كانت شمسھا تحرق كما الحقیقة. ھنا في مكان المذبحة! لم یتوقف صمتھا عن تخدیر غضبي.
