POETRY / Peace / Ann Huang


Poetesses write & dream:
puncture, skin, ruby,
Moringa plant, wood,
gone. Their friend’s 
piano; the pages
for a friend
as she tastes her age;
the friend’s pages the progression
they’ve saved. The timber
is not a lesson in which
they could miss. The city
is slim. They feed 
from its center.

Ann Huang was born in China and moved to Mexico when she was a teen. As an MFA recipient in Poetry from the Vermont College of Fine Arts, Huang’s poetry has appeared online and in print extensively. Her poem “Night Lullaby,” was a Ruth Stone Poetry Prize finalist. Huang's book-length collection, Saffron Splash, was selected as finalist in the CSU Poetry Center's Open Book Poetry Competition. Huang's new poetry collection, A Shaft of Light, is due out in 2019. Her poems follow the surrealistic gestures that weave reality into divergent realms of perspectives and perceptions.
