“A Derby in Sapphics”

Posted on • Words by • Art by

Collaborators Q&A: Artist Zehra Khan: The poem sets you up in a frenzy of colors and sounds, and then drops you into reality of a pandemic flat line. Poet Danielle Cadena Deulen: My mother was a student of art and a beautiful artist in her own right. I grew up with artist monographs around the house and some of my happiest memories as a child were of sitting in her lap, flipping through the pages, and listening to her talk quietly about the works of Chagall, van Gogh, and Picasso. I didn’t inherit her visual gifts, but I still feel a childlike wonder and love for visual art.

Poet Danielle Cadena Deulen is the author of a memoir and two poetry collections. She is an assistant professor at Georgia State University in Atlanta and hosts “Lit from the Basement” a podcast and radio show. Zehra Khan is a multi-disciplinary artist who likes to make things by hand. Khan is American and Pakistani, born in Indonesia. You can find her work at www.zehrakhan.com
