Description


Nguyen] shares such a streetwise feminism, keeping the edge and making it something you can dance to.--The Poetry Project

Clear-eyed and grounded, Hoa Nguyen performs a hook and snare on what it means to be a twenty-first century human in the nearly ego-less space of these chiseled yet spacious poems.

It's not a time to run
I wear soft shoes
and it took a long time
to walk here

Hoa Nguyen is the co-founder of Skanky Possum. She lives in Toronto, Ontario.
