Zaki Aizaz               Poetry                Third Millennium Publishing


Zaki Aizaz was born on January 24, 1993 from the Love of his Lucknow mother and Meerut father. Around age two, he began to pray for a little sister, who was born on July 18, 1996. He grew up in Ahwatukee, Arizona, experiencing a relatively unique childhood. In high school, he competed successfully in debate earning titles such as State Champion, and 1st Speaker at the prestigious national Tournament of Champions, before realizing the arbitrary nature of both competition and debate, as well as the inherent shortfalls of rhetorical manipulation, and that “the Good do not debate, debaters are not good” (Tao Te Ching, Verse 81). After quitting debate, he withdrew to a life of spiritual evolution, “self-cultivation”, and sensory exploration. He has travelled extensively to places including India, Mexico, Canada, Costa Rica, Pakistan, France, Amsterdam, Iran, Spain, Dubai, and others— watching, listening, and learning everywhere he goes. His hobbies include wandering and Loving— among several other less important things. Zaki is currently 18 years old and attends the Evergreen State College, located in the woods of Olympia, Washington, where he is studying Chinese culture, arts, and poetics as well as Mandarin Chinese. He presently speaks English, Urdu, and some Spanish, and hopes to explore and experience as much of the world as possible in his (relatively) short time here.
