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

Grounded in the present tense—in the dailiness of politics and domesticity, citizenship and femaleness—Nguyen’s loose, everyday language performs a hook and snare on the ungraspable reality of 21st century America. In the nearly ego-less space of these chiseled yet spacious poems, an extraordinarily clear-eyed poet claims her stakes.
