Words on forthcoming Wave book

As Long As Trees Last by Hoa Nguyen

Release Date: September 1, 2012

It’s not a time to run
I wear soft shoes
and it took a long time
to walk here

In the nearly ego-less space of these chiseled yet spacious poems, an extraordinarily clear-eyed poet claims her stakes.
