My name is Ẹniafẹ Isis Adewale. In a line I would say that I am a woman breaking into herself. The words here are both evidence of this breaking, and also mending, and finding my way. This title, Words, As Fruit, is inspired by writer and poet Nayyirah Waheed.

"pick a word like you pick a melon. examine its skin. its weight. its viscosity. its sound. its texture. its ability to be juice and meat." — Nayyirah Waheed

Words, As Fruit. is a harvesting. Sound in the way of words. Texture in the way of lessons. Juice in the way of learning. And meat in the way of thought and perspective.

May you enjoy this offering.
