Michelle Chen creates intimate portraits of lived experience by showing us what it is to speculate from the margins. Her poems function as postcards or snapshots with brief notes on the back which the guide the reader without completely elucidating the situation. This poetry asks us to question such things as what it means to reemerge as if we had never been born at all.
