About the Book
In “wash between your toes”, the speaker feeds us snippets of pain alongside hope, culminating in a collection of pithy poems detailing loss, isolation, and ultimately, community. Teni Ayo-Ariyo’s debut chapbook is awash in vibrant images of learning to be at home in the self — a self that finds comfort in her Nigerian ancestry yet is also searching for family, identity, love, and for relief from a present that dominates a history that refuses to be forgotten: “i could die tomorrow / what that really means is, i can live today.” wash between your toes is a celebration of the electric breathtaking power imbedded in the nuanced experiences of a Black immigrant woman living in America.
