This collection is titled Bon Mua, literally meaning four seasons; however, in the authors use, the term indicates four movements delineating the progression of my oeuvre. Bon Mua is presented in the form of a drama -- a dramatic monologue, featuring the many voices that inhabit us all, divided into canh, or scenes. The poems in Bon Mua serve as a means of not only surviving abuse but finding a way to create something beautiful. The collection of poetry, which is composed of four sections, is a dialectic between language and experience.
