screenshot from Poem in Noisy Mouthfuls by Chen Chen:
Can’t get over you. Trying to get
over what my writer friend said, All you
write about is being gay or Chinese.
Wish I had thought to say to him, All you
write about is being white
or an asshole. Wish I had said, No, I already
write about everything—
& everything is salt, noise, struggle, hair,
carrying, kisses, leaving, myth, popcorn,
mothers, bad habits, questions.
