Poetry is the only way out of here
by Nouria Behloul
This publication is hosting a collection of poems by Nouria Behloul written between 2011 and 2021. Poetry is the only way out of here is her guiding principle; mantra; battle cry. Poetry is not merely a label for writery, it is an attitude to the wor(l)d, a reflexive tool of reflecting. In present surpassing limits of absurdity on a daily base, poetry is a way of making simultaneity and contradiction tangible. In days like these, it becomes absolutely necessary in order not to lose one‘s mind.
