Inshallah On Planes
In response to the April 2016 story of the man kicked off a Southwest airplane for saying the word “inshallah”, a few of poets got together to write a collective poem on the word “Inshallah”. This poem is a collective work by Taz Ahmed, Ramy El-Etreby, Kenji Liu, Farhana Jahan, Devi S. Laskar, Mariela Regalado, Sham-e-Ali Nayeem, Laura Sermeno, Kirin Khan, Karineh Mahdessian, Nadiah Mohajir, Saheli Datta, Najeeba Syeed, Cleo Anderson, Sean Miura, Faaizah Paatail, Affad Shaikh, Elmaz Abinader, Ashaki Jackson, traci kato-kiriyama, Deonna Kelli Sayed, Neelanjana Banerjee.
We encourage you to take this poem, print it up, and sneak it into airplane magazines. We also encourage you to turn it into a paper plane and fly it through the sky — no TSA pat down required.
