Dreamscapes – Brisbane

 

MisbahPoetryMap

As a part of their participation in the Peril/Queensland Poetry Festival collaborative edition, poets were invited to submit up to two poems that reflected their experience and interaction with the question, “What is Queensland?”. For her response, Misbah Khokhar has shared this poetry collage, Dreamscapes, which she describes as:

stitched and glued with hair, old photos, watercolours, DNA and written on an old Helvetica typewriter that I found at the top of my current street.
