Forty-seven poems by the Los Angeles writer.
Chiwan Choi uses sincerity to create headsplitting power, and combines a rather lilting lyricism with charnel house images to produce a singularly powerful effect. This transformation of autobiography into cosmological truth, or at least epistemoligical truth, is a singular example of poets' ability to transform their lives into art.
