Location:New York, United States of America

Twenty-something Asian American woman living in Manhattan. Fiction writer. Musician with too many violins. (Is there such a thing as too many violins?) Heart brimming with wanderlust. Shutterbug who freelances. Occasional watercolor dreamer. Steadfast vegetarian, sometimes vegan. Particularly loves honey bees and owls. And puppies. How could anyone forget puppies?

“I know nothing in the world that has as much power as a word.
Sometimes I write one, and I look at it, until it begins to shine.”

-- Emily Dickinson

women are raising pale arms
in the smoking damp air
to hail taxis—

rain shivers like fountains from a mountain
trickling down the glass walls of celestial towers
fishes jump clear of the river
of paintings held captive in museums—
my dream is a city of one million dwellings
and beckoning roads to unexplored lands—

listen, all you need to take is a lipstick
and I two bottles of wine—
and we will wake from the darkened stream
of deep traveling
on a luminous bed in a singular inn
with the pale gurgling of water in the gutters—

so that I may drunkenly utter—
no, write in red on the misty mirror:
I love you, you know—
yes, yes I now love you so

-- Breyten Breytenbach
