April 2021: Kalopsia by Naadia Rehman
[kal-op–see–uh] -noun. a condition, state or delusion in which things appear
more beautiful than they really are.
The poem revolves around the struggles of women navigating through the pressure and oppression of society. The gradual shift of colour from red to blue represents the bruises and wounds and how by the end they’re hoping to heal. We are in Kalopsia, a state of delusion. This poem aims to break that and tackle the harsh reality.
