Gansel opens this meditative volume of 53 prose poems with an epigraph from Gaston Bachelard: 'against all odds, the house invites us to say: I will be a citizen of the world despite the world.' In these war-torn days of refugees fleeing to Europe, Gansel strives to describe what we have in common, creating a crossroads of people, places, and languages she has loved. For Gansel, a poet rebuilding her 'soul house,' every word is a building block. At the same time that she welcomes the stranger to her lost house, poetry is her weapon - 'these migrant poems from all languages, these smuggled words that no border can stop' - with which to fight persecution and exile. Sophie Ehrsam wrote, 'The 'soul house' is anything that harbors a glimmer, a hope, including an open door or an outstretched hand.'
