World Poetry Day Translation of Imprisoned Cameroonian Poet

I'm honored to take part in EnglishPen's World Poetry Day translation project. Imprisoned Cameroonian poet Enoh Meyomesse's work is focused on his experience of persecution and suffering. My translation of his poem
Mon chapeau, je te lève’ is found on their website. The project draws attention to Meyomesse's plight as well as that of many other writers whose voices have been silenced by repressive regimes.
