Abstract

The following poem attempts to think about loss from the perspective of different religions (the Jewish prophet Jeremiah, a Christian sermon, a Buddhist tale, Muslim prayer and traditions). The piece travels through time as well as space: it looks back at the Renaissance as a period in which Jeremiah’s lamentations were set to music and forced travel/slavery between Morocco and England first occurred.
