Justseeds artist Jess X. Chen has been hiding in a hermit hole writing poems exploring eco-feminism, environmental resilience and love amidst diaspora, violence and trauma. Here are some of her new poems that have found homes on the internet.
The Resistance of the Angler Fish
of the angler fish
is to end
a billion years
by crowning itself
with its own star.
– Jess X. Chen, originally appearing in The Offing
