Cryptoquote Solved – 06/20/22

Q&A: Poet, writer and educator Warsan Shire |

No one leaves home unless home is the mouth of a shark.”   —   Warsan Shire

(This lovely young woman is a poet, a writer, an editor and a teacher.  She was born in Kenya to Somali parents, and it sounds like she is echoing the feelings of her parents.  For a long time it seemed like Somalia was locked in a never-ending civil war.  Likely a good reason for her parents leaving.  Apparently she is very popular, but of course I’d never heard of her, as I’m not into the poetry scene.  First time at the Cryptoquote!  So, we welcome her to the Cryptoquote Club today!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    It seems that she was recently in a Celebrity Cipher, or an L.A. Times crossword puzzle. I had to Google her name at the time. “Mouth of a shark” is a vivid, poetic image!

    Yeah, hal. After writing out the unused consonants I was figuring Carsan, or Garsan. Warsan was no wheres on my radar. — YUR
