“Landmarks and Geography”
A borrowed title.
The poetry world said goodbye to Fay Chiang last month—a bright light in the New York arts community, and a writer who championed Asian American rights through her poems and activism.
Dear poets, in honor of Chiang’s life, borrow one of her poem titles (listed below), and see what unspools:
Landmarks and Geography
Mother of my soul
For those who runaway from the movement
it was as if
In the City of Contradictions
