A powerful poem, about where we come from, what we look like and the dangers we face.

Phoenix

By Weichen Ling

A virus, a president’s, sweeping characterization

A mask, a statement, intimidation

A slow and deliberate cough or

Violent words, violent actions

A gun, a man, a spa

Grief, in a moment

Turns to anger, turns to fire

They abrase us to erase us

I insist to exist

Every breath a resist

Brazenly Asian, we persist
