Suppose you do change your life. & the body is more than

a portion of night—sealed 
with bruises. Suppose you woke & found your shadow replaced 
by a black wolf. The boy, beautiful & gone. So you take the knife to the wall 
instead. You carve & carve 
until a coin of light appears & you get to look in, at last, 
on happiness. The eye 
staring back from the other side—

waiting. — Torso of Air

I’m a mood reader so I rarely set a TBR for the month. But, here are some - not all - of the LGBTQ novels on my unread shelf for my #PrideMonthReads. This month’s priorities are Guapa, When Katie Met Cassidy, No Ashes in the Fire, and finishing Edinburgh and Nepantla: An Anthology. I’m also rereading Under the Udala Trees for our readalong (not pictured here). Have you read any of these titles? Where would you start? 🏳️‍🌈 ps don’t forget to enter my giveaway before midnight tomorrow!

These are some of my practice sheets at Yukimi Annand workshop. I’ve used Tim’s folding pen. 
I loved the journey from the monoline pencil sketch to the different style variations. 
The meaning of the text was always the reason of any decision about form, rhythm, movement or color. 
Yukimi, I can’t wait to learn with you again, thank you for your generosity!

Turn back & find the book I left 
for us, filled 
with all the colors of the sky 
forgotten by gravediggers.
Use it.
Use to prove how the stars 
were always what we knew 
they were: the exit wounds 
of every 
misfired word.

“The most beautiful part of your body is wherever your mother’s shadow falls.” - Ocean Vuong
Today’s #100daysofheirloomanthology is dedicated to the mother I most hope to emulate: mine. No one carries themselves with more grace, generosity, and joy than her. Inspired by the two of us in 1982.

I don't read much poetry but a little while ago I devoured NIGHT SKY WITH EXIT WOUNDS by Ocean Vuong in a single day. Since then, this collection honestly hasn't stopped being on my mind.

Ocean was born in Vietnam in 1988 and at age two he and his family moved to the US. They'd spent a year in a refugee camp beforehand. He was the first member of his family to learn how to read proficiently, but he talks about how he isn't the first poet: his family has a long history of storytelling through songs and poetry, but as an oral tradition.

This is his first collection. It's raw and devastating and beautiful in turn, exploring love, death, race, displacement, family, classical literature, sexual orientation, and the legacy of war. More than one poem is an absolute gut punch. Ocean's use of language is breathtaking, and I'll definitely be revisiting this book again and again.

My Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

"When they ask you where you’re from, tell them your name was fleshed from the toothless mouth of a war-woman. That you were not born but crawled, headfirst— into the hunger of dogs. My son, tell them the body is a blade that sharpens by cutting."
—
Just pure beauty. A poetry book that makes you feel things in you that you didn’t know existed. Ocean Vuong is talented to the core.

Recommend to a friend? Yess, especially if you love poetry.

Book: Night Sky with Exit Wounds by Ocean Voung
Summary: a book with poems that talk about subjects of family, grief war and relationships. •
•

So I first read this book a few months back and was instantly enamoured by the story behind the poems. Of course, as it is poetry, it is often hard to grasp the situation and what is happening and even until the end, with this book, I found myself a little unsure of the actual happenings in the book. However, I think that was the best moment whilst reading this book, because when I closed the book, my mind was still thinking about what this or that could mean. 
Vuong’s writing, also, captured me. This was because of the way he showed passion through his poems that just kept me wanting to read more— and also understand more. •
• 
this book was a fairly quick read and I really hope to re-read this book. It was also one of the first book of poems I read in a while so I was really excited to read it, and I was not disappointed. I’d say this book is suited for people who like thinking and trying to find a meaning, trying to make sense of words laid out meaningfully on a page but I’d still totally recommend this to anyone. •——— rating: 4/5 •

These poems will rock you. I think some themes in this book are 1. Claim your desire, even if the cost is high, 2. An absent father can loom larger than a present one, 3. A mother's love can be a shelter, 4. The war in Vietnam sucked.( I may have missed a few things.)

Kissing in #Vietnamese
(thơ Việt ở dưới) 
My grandmother kisses
as if bombs are bursting in the backyard,
where mint and jasmine lace their perfumes
through the kitchen window,
as if somewhere, a body is falling apart
and flames are making their way back
through the intricacies of a young boy’s thigh,
as if to walk out the door, your torso
would dance from exit wounds.
When my grandmother kisses, there would be
no flashy smooching, no western music
of pursed lips, she kisses as if to breathe
you inside her, nose pressed to cheek
so that your scent is relearned
and your sweat pearls into drops of gold
inside her lungs, as if while she holds you
death also, is clutching your wrist.
My grandmother kisses as if history
never ended, as if somewhere
a body is still
falling apart. - @oceanvuong , Vương Quốc Vinh --- Hôn kiểu người Việt
Bà tôi hôn
như thể bom đang nổ ở sân sau nhà,
nơi bạc hà và hoa nhài phẩy hương
qua cửa sổ bếp,
như thể ở đâu đó, một cơ thể đang rã rời
và những ngọn lửa đang tìm đường trở lại
qua những mạch máu của đùi một chàng trai trẻ,
như thể để bước ra khỏi cửa, thân mình bạn
sẽ nhảy cùng những vết thương xuyên.
Khi bà tôi hôn, sẽ không
có âu yếm cầu kỳ, không âm nhạc Tây phương
của đôi môi mím chặt, bà hôn như thể để hít lấy
bạn vào bên trong bà, mũi ép vào má
để mùi của bạn đọng lại thành những giọt mật vàng
trong phổi, như thể trong khi bà ôm bạn
cái chết cũng đang nắm chặt cổ tay.
Bà tôi hôn như thể lịch sử
chưa bao giờ chấm dứt, như thể ở đâu đó
một cơ thể vẫn đang
rã rời.
