A verse from the poem “8th Son” by Syrian poet Golan Haji is written once in the Diwani Jali Arabic calligraphy script to create the image of a human skull in profile.
This piece was one of eight designs, commissioned by Reel Festivals to accompany their poetry publication featuring contemporary poets from Lebanon, Syria, and Scotland. A piece was commissioned for each of the eight poets featured in the festival. In preparation for the festival, all of the poets traveled to Lebanon in order to translate each other's poems from Arabic to English and vice versa, this is one of those recently translated poems.
Verse 3 of “8th Son” by Golan Haji
those who are being loved are the others
I will not live
as a stone in a locked room
I will lie down under the skull of my father
as an incomplete kiss
I will leave the lips of my sister
she who has just been killed.
