Two Sunsets on a Sunday
Ahmad Aamir Malik is an aspiring Pakistani poet. He will start his master’s in history at McGill University in fall 2023. He believes in the power of poetry to both enhance the experience of a sunset as well as charge politically. He enjoys listening to Joni Mitchell and Simon and Garfunkel songs while walking through parks. He won the World Historian Student Essay Contest (2018) and the California Quarterly Monthly Contest for August 2021. His poems have been published in Cambridge’s Notes magazine, The Punch Magazine, Montreal Writes, California Quarterly, McGill’s The Empathy Journal, and Pulse: McGill’s Urban Studies Journal.
