Cha: An Asian Literary Journal.
I don't consider it my typical writing style, as I tend to keep away from writing about my life in such a direct and revealing manner but I was inspired by a writing exercise I learned from the very talented Moe Clark who I recently had the great pleasure of co-teaching a writing workshop with for the Quebec Writers' Federation's Writers in the Community program.
The poem's themes touch on ethnicity and adoption. It is dedicated to my mother.

Thank you, Tammy Ho Lai-Ming and the team of editors at Cha.
