Biography of Tina Chan

Tina Chan is a lively spoken word poet whose writing style is a poetic puzzle for readers to determine the definitive underwriting. She has an abiding passion for writing ablaze: be it poetry or be it Yelp reviews based on personal experiences for life’s juicy sweetness to eschew the negativity as an outlet. Her life’s struggles do not define her as a person, but uses it as a motivator for inspiration as an outlet in her writing.

Tina made her poetry debut in early 2009 and has been fortunate to be selected as a feature performer at various open-mikes. She has been published in the 2013 Brownstone Poets Anthology, Nomad’s Choir Poetry Magazine, Summer 2014, Spring 2013, Spring 2012 and Fall 2011; and Big City Lit, Fall 2011.

Half and Half

Half and half
A half man who is incapable
Of providing sincere love
Lacking the act of respect
Inattentive compassion
Inadequate kindness
Ineffective to produce effective communication
Never whole, never complete
