Through My Letterbox

Shamshad Khan is teaching a course at the Poetry School in Manchester from October. As I don't know her work, I ordered and just received this collection to find out more about her.
I'm really impressed by her poetry and like it very much. It's easy to sit down and read the book from cover to cover. Follow this link to her poem 'pot' (commissioned by the Manchester Museum) which finishes with the following inscription: 
'Dedicated to a Nigerian pot currently incarcerated in the Manchester Museum without charge or access to legal representation'.
