Jen Chen Poems

Wisps of shiftless grey puff and curl

A lick of fire
...

Remember when we were explorers?

The world was a blank slate which we drew upon
...

Unfurrow the mast, ready the sails

If only to be
once again
...

Can I sit with you?

Thank you
...

My sister's soul was spotless, mine was spotted by design
They were hues of different colors
That did not fall in line
I was angry, I was crazy, I was shouting all the time
...

I was born into the world wrapped in two pairs of loving arms
That promised to protect me
From anything and everything
I was born with a sense that I could be anything and everything
...

I cry into nothingness
My confidence has long disintegrated
Into a cold unfeeling ash
The world is a mix of puzzle pieces
...

The Best Poem Of Jen Chen

Mother

Wisps of shiftless grey puff and curl

A lick of fire

Barely visible against a haze of darkness

Vitality startles

The drooping wick

Whose countenance is dripping with shame

Awakens from within

whimpering embers

The light of tomorrow
