Ching-In Chen: “South in Hundreds: missing one hundred”


IAS faculty member Ching-In Chen’s “South in Hundreds: missing one hundred” was selected by guest curator Meg Day for the Academy of American Poets’ Poem-A-Day Series, which is sent out to 450,000 subscribers daily. The series initially began as one-hundred-word segments, which were braided to evoke the ghostly dislocations and detachments of relocating from Houston to Seattle. You can read the poem and listen to an audio recording of the poem on the website.
