--- Title: Ocean Vuong Date: 2022-04-18 Sequence: Tags:  ---
Ran into another banger of a poem from Ocean Vuong. I get all my poetry from instagram and tiktok which is probably a bad thing. But it still hits like a brick.
Don't you know? A mother's love neglects pride the way fire neglects the cries of those it burns.
This is just lovely.
The one I ran into today was:
Brooklyn's too cold tonight & all my friends are three years away.
The longing in these words and the nostalgia are palatable.
I've ordered the book, night sky with exit wounds.
Bit of a break from our regular programming.
