'Omar Musa writes hard, beautiful poems about things that are true.' - Kate Tempest

A collection of love poems and fierce raps, Millefiori is Omar Musa's third book of poetry. Both dream-like and gritty, it also includes gorgeous illustrations and draft poems from Musa's notebook. Heartbreak, cocaine, colonial violence, memory and cave paintings: this is a world full of unbearable beauty and brutality.

We know the world is a horror story,
but it's also got love notes in the margins.


Omar Musa writes hard, beautiful poems about things that are true.

Kate Tempest

Each poem in Musa's Millefiori beats with a large heart.

Gregory Pardlo, winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry

Fierce, lyrical and intimate, Omar Musa's poetry sets words aflame.

Helen Macdonald, author of H is for Hawk
