Michelle Chen creates intimate portraits of lived experience by showing us what it is to speculate from the margins. Her poems function as postcards or snapshots with  brief notes on the back which the guide the reader without completely elucidating  the situation.  This poetry asks us to question such things as what it means to  reemerge as if we had never been born at all.
