Literature Poetry Tannaz Taghizadeh

Unedited me

Not a pretty structure
No beautiful content
Lots of typos
Lots of mean adverbs

Repetitive form
Contrasting voices
Yelling in Farsi
Shouting in English

Not pragmatic
Just dark

Stuffy, complex not like-me words


Screaming in capitals

Calling people that not who
No clarity no style

Not proofread of course

You don’t like this version, do you?

It is not printable

But loves you

Tannaz Taghizadeh was born in Tehran, Iran. She came to Toronto years ago. With a background in literature back in Iran, she searched for poetry readings in Toronto, and followed the art bars’ poetry nights and got the courage through Fraser Sutherland to read some of her own at the open mic section of Tuesday nights. Her poems appear in LRC, Grain, EVENT, and Canadian Literature Quarterly. She also translates poetry and stories from English to Farsi and Farsi to English, with poetry and over 15 short stories published in different magazines in Iran, USA and Canada, and a collection of her translations of short stories under publication in Iran.
