Four Poems

Mi Jialu, Lucas Klein, Michael Day, Matt Turner, Haiying Weng

Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debatepeer-review


These four poems by Mi Jialu show a personal contemplation on the torturous human condition Inflicted by historical traumas, environmental crisis, and diasporic alienation. Through a gaze of a surreal lens, the poet seeks to express the inexpressible haunted by memory, dreams, and ghosts. With a more psychological quest, the poet embarks on a journey into the heart of darkness for self-redemption and spiritual illumination.
