Author's statement on the text:

"In the winter of 2008, Israel launched Operation Cast Lead against Gaza. I began writing a poem. That following summer, I traveled to the Middle East to meet with Arab writers (with the poet Brandon Shimoda). In Lebanon, Abir Ward invited me to the village of Baakleen to live with her and her family, relatives of the late poet Nadia Tueni, in a five hundred year-old castle built by their ancestors on the rim of a mountain above a fig orchard. Each night fog invaded the orchard and made sweeter the figs growing there. I slept in a room where previously a bomb had fallen through the ceiling above the bed and exploded."
