Listed below are links to weblogs that reference A Week of Asian Pacific Islander American Poetry - Kenji C. Liu:


Great start! I'm really looking forward to this week of posts. And I love the "one guideline" you've put on your contributors.


Props for acknowledging the pros and cons of labeling poets. After all, only the Sith deal in absolutes ;-)

Looking forward to the rest of the series.

Thanks to you Stacey, and to everyone at Best American Poetry for this opportunity.

Thanks Oscar. I hope the Sith will forgive me when I say that Sith poetry is rather dry and uninteresting. ;-)

Beautiful and inspired, and inspiring so far. Thank you.

Thanks Fredken! Hope to see your comments on the other posts in this series.

I am really enjoying Kenji's idea of contributing and curating posts about APIA poetry, something I don't read enough about in lit blogs and journals. Keep it coming...

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
