About The Book
“What our lives permit us to perceive as givens, Nguyen reveals as mere conditions, inextricably tied to and guided by greater forces — from the economy to the environment, from the Mayan predictions to the menstrual cycle, from the weight of history to the burden of the future.” —Michael Brodeur, The Boston Globe
The poems in Violet Energy Ingots contain a sense of dis-ease, rupture, things frayed, and grief — as love shimmers the edges. Ryo Yamaguchi describes Nguyen’s writing as “a kind of stuttering with intelligences, impressions, and emotions flaring up as the words find their pathways.” As grounded in the earth as in the stars, her poems are reminders of the possibilities of contemplation in every space and moment.
A Brief History of War
And what if Jupiter
is your faith
but I call you
by the improper
names I’m stained
by the world here
To be brave and endure
the losing To be brave
and be the losing
