Four Dances with Light
 


Formerly working in film and TV, Khaled  Nurul  Hakim has claims to being the first homegrown British-Asian experimental poet, working with semi-improvisatory performances in the 1980s and 90s. Largely refusing to publish at the time, he abandoned both writing and film in the new millennium to become a Sufi student and musician. He returned to writing after a decade and has published Letters from the Takeaway (Shearsman 2019), The Book of Naseeb (Penned in the Margins 2020) and The Routines: 1983-2000 (Contraband Books 2021). His work appears in NationalPoetryMonth.ca.
