Lantern Review: A Journal of Asian American Poetry

Issue 4 | Winter 2012

How a rainbow is weightless, how it can carry
wait. How your heart carries memory, footsteps

of yesterday’s refugee, song of tomorrow’s
compatriots. You chalk a rainbow across side-

walks, make an affiliation of sky & earth, song
& silence, those made & unmade & ready to be

made, this world &

this world, and yet

again, now changed — again — this world & this world.
