The “You In Haiku” Poetry Series By Rosie Chuong | Volume VI

By October 31, 2019 No Comments

Themes within Volume VI of You In Haiku

Descriptions of intimacy, millennial love, and the rise of the modern woman are all embedded in this sixth set of the You In Haiku series. A lot of what I wrote here played back and forth between different stages of intimacy – from first kisses to attachment to acts of making love. But then there were other forms of attachment written in this set, from thinking about someone who lives very far away to attempting to remove someone from the mind via digital devices…
