May the bridges

A series of bridges connects the dozens of cliffs around a grand, corrupt kingdom. The only way one prisoner hopes to escape the castle alive is to leave a trail of flames roaring in her wake.

The Roads We Take

Settle down and talk to the person you’re with. Both of you have come a long way to be before one another today.

Slowfall

Charles and I are overworked, underappreciated, and exhausted. There’s nothing with us tonight except the emptiness in our hearts and the beauty of the nightly city.

The Bus Home

It’s been a long night. The simplicity of your bus ride home is a bit more wonderful than you’d normally realize.

Quickwords

Quickwords is my very own poetry series! Each volume has about two or three poems loosely or closely related to that volume’s theme.

I aim to write a total of 100 volumes, and I’d love your company as I progress towards that goal. Happy reading!

Journey

“Journey” is a poem that you might get a chance to see if you’re ever walking around Downtown San Jose.

Submitted to the City of San Jose’s Litter-ature public art program, “Journey” now decorates dozens of trash cans around the city.

I definitely haven’t found all of them, so if you do, let me know.

Unattainable, Pursued

This one’s probably a bit harder to find.

“Unattainable, Pursued” rests proudly among a wide assortment of youth poetry work in Futures, the 2018 Student Poetry Collection by The America Library of Poetry.
