read me dry

sally 오 yërin 예 oh 린 was born in seoul in palindromic 1991 with dual citizenship

where she spent most summers rollerblading the streets of jamsil

during her parents’ christmas vacation who resided in texas where she was raised. 

did you catch that?  me neither.  

seeking balance between

familial identity and selfhood, korean-ness and american-ness,

religion gender and sexuality, debt and ownership, and shame and liberation.

this is an open letter that i hope might lend

tender camaraderie to those living one or all of these experiences.
