Wendy Xu

Maybe don’t for another minute be afraid
of anything. Because swimming is really useful
against drowning which you didn’t know until
you tried it. And then your life was just massive
regret. And then you thought about three
purple blossoms in the hair
of a beautiful girl.

—  Wendy Xu, “Please Stand A While Longer In The Vast, Amazing Dark,” Vinyl Poetry. Volume  5, March 2012.
