Ocean Vuong

To keep & be kept.                        The way a field                        turns its secrets into peonies.                        The way light                        keeps its shadow by swallowing it. — Ocean Vuong, from “Into the Breach.” Boston Review: Poet’s Sampler, September 08, 2014
