Best Poem of Cathy Park Hong

Engines Within The Throne

We once worked as clerks

scanning moth-balled pages

into the clouds, all memories

outsourced except the fuzzy

childhood bits when


I was an undersized girl with a tic,

they numbed me with botox

I was a skinsuit

of dumb expression, just fingerprints

over my shamed


all I wanted was snow

to snuff the sun blades to shadow spokes,

muffle the drum of freeways, erase

the old realism


but this smart snow erases

nothing, seeps ...
