Split free pdf ""Split" crosses borders, exposing truths and dreams, violations of body and mind, aligning them until the deep push-pull of silence and song become a bridge. And here we cross over into a landscape where beauty interrogates, and we encounter a voice that refuses to let us off the hook."--Yusef Komunyakaa"Perhaps the writer's most difficult task is to render the catastrophic linked non-stories that comprise transgenerational trauma. Cathy Linh Che's collection "Split" accomplishes this nearly impossible challenge with uncommon grace and power. Each poem unwinds the cataclysm of personal wounding by making itself irresistibly beautiful." --LA ReviewIn this stunning debut, we follow one woman's profoundly personal account of sexual violence against the backdrop of cultural conflict deftly illustrated through her parents' experiences of the Vietnam War, immigration, and its aftermath. By looking closely at landscape and psyche, "Split" explores what happens when deep trauma occurs and seeks to understand what it means to finally become whole. PomegranateI open my chest and birds flock out.In my mother's garden, the roses flaretoward the sun, but I am an arrow pointing back.I am Persephone, a virgin abducted. In the Underworld, I starve a seasonwhile the world wilts into the ghostof a summer backyard.My hunger open and raw. I lay next to a manwho did not love me
