The poems in this online chapbook of poetry, images, and audio were inspired by Jeevan Narney’s two-year stay in Dezhou, China. They reflect upon his solitude with creation no matter where he lives. “There I was, gazing at the small floral wonders amidst city life,” he says. The poem-image diptychs are also a personal reflection of how Jeevan is “starting to see the soul in everything. It was my intention to give dignity and speak to these things as I would to a human being.”
Jeevan Narney is currently finishing up his MFA in poetry at the University of Arizona. His work has appeared in Right Hand Pointing, The Drunken Boat, and Spiral Orb. These prose poems are from his larger chapbook-in-progress, Resident of the Paths.
