“Today, I am sad./ The imagined opera singer/ usually so reliable, narrating in my head/ disrobes her largeness on stage.”

// from "My Quiet Opera"

Park is a cabaret player for the page. In the space of a little over five hundred words, she juxtaposes imagery of performance, immigration, car crash, racism, longing, mortality, and more. Her poems are agile, improvisational, and pleasingly untidy.

Having returned from a period abroad, she's now once more based in the Boston area, and as editors and readers we look forward to following her deepening involvement in the local literary and arts scenes... and to further opportunities for collaboration and support-through-publication.

About this chapbook series:

These bite-sized booklets are a mouthful of literature each, intended to be read in a single sitting. When you’re done with one, pass it along! Look for them lying around in Boston, Portland, or New York City. When you see one waiting to be read, go ahead and pick it up. Give it a home in your hands for a ten-minute lit snack. Then when you’re finished, leave it behind for the next person to find, in an ATM lobby, on a train station bench, in the coffeeshop, at the pub.

To request a single copy of any chapbook in the series, or a set of copies in bulk quantity so you can pepper them around your neighborhood, just contact the Pen & Anvil Press and we can put a plan together to mail some over to you. You can reach us via the good folks at the Boston Poetry Union, PO Box 15274 Boston MA 02215. If you don’t have a stamp, feel free to send us an email.
