Subliminal Dust

Silence is never silent, so long as there is a listening ear.

In her newest collection of poetry, Pooja Mittal listens to the silences that populate our world — silences of discord and reverence, of consciousness and death. These vast and impenetrable silences fill the spaces within us and without; they give meaning to the substance of our lives, to the voices we hear and the words we speak. Here, in Subliminal Dust, Mittal transcribes those silences and gives them speech.
