boke 暈け | Jasmine Gui
With illustrations by Jacqueline Lai
boke is a blue collection, a rainy collection, a walking collection.
These poems are about the journey of looking and not seeing exactly, but seeing enough. From the tiny logging towns and coastal ports in Malaysia, to the mega cities of Hong Kong and Singapore, the many places of home, family and history converge, tumbling and washing up against the rim of the poet’s “I”.
