Through a series of poems a young girl chronicles

The life changing year of 1975. When she, her mother,

And her brother escaped the Vietnam before the fall

of Saigon an have a much better life in Alabama.

Back Cover

Mother slaps my hand.

Learn to compromise.

I refuse to retrieve the pouches,

Pour, go to bed, stare at the photograph of a real papaya tree,

Wonder if I’ll ever taste sweet, tender, orange flesh again.

GOOONNNNGGGGG

Rings out;

How soothing a real gong sounds.

Swirls of incense

Reach me,

Hovering like a blanket,

Tugging me in.

I wake up at faint light,

Guilt heavy on my chest.

I head toward the trash can.
