Flooding the Delta
A Journey Through Things Found and Forgotten
Who are the forgotten around you?
Flooding The Delta is a collection of poems about memory, loss, and returning home. Fragmented memories float on the surface of floodwaters.
There are no easy answers to grief and its myriad longings in these pages, no trite proverbs. This collection is a call to turn our attention homeward. Because when we forget our people, we forget ourselves.
Flooding the Delta is a celebration of the Thai nirat, exploring the topography of the heart as it explores the topography of the land. Each poem can be read on its own or as part of the journey of the collection.
