Hal Y. Zhang, AMNESIA

new publication by former contributor Hal Y. Zhang:

from Newfound:

After nearly forgetting her first language, Hal Y. Zhang discovered a jagged hole that could not be filled by a second. “AMNESIA,” her debut poetry chapbook, grasps at the echoes of her mother and sister tongues, 中文 and English. In both subject and form, these poems excavate the personal and the linguistic and map profound shifts in identity to the shape of words and radicals. Find their buried skins, their bitter unfurling, and divine the root forms of their leaves.
