Prior in Conversation with Nguyen at The Walrus

from an interview on The Walrus:

Unknown“Her poems often use carefully juxtaposed phrases— images, fragments of dialogue, puns—in order to reveal the power structures and ideologies embedded in the seemingly most innocuous of comments and objects.

‘Gather the firm clever thing / from the moment looking away,’ writes Nguyen in “Leave,” the last poem in Violet Energy Ingots, a directive that might be read as a compressed ars poetica, its recipient simultaneously poet and reader and page.
