blur by the, by Cham Zhi Yi. Published by Subbed In.
‘blur by the is a collection of fractures that make not quite a whole. It is a giving of permission to the self, to exist as messily as ( i s ). These poems are a record of navigation through longing and dis [ place ] ment of the body and of place, a shattering of expectation(s) of the self and of family, often through dreams, food and eroticism. blur by the is a yearning for freedom from grief, memory, and—ultimately—from definition.
