Book Candies

My personal library has steadily increased as friends continue to send me books. I received four books and the summer issue of Colorlines Magazine. Whenever I receive books, I feel like a kid who was given the world's most delicious candy. It's sweet to my eyes and healthy for my mind.

So, I will be reading the following books:

Foreign Babes in Beijing by Rachel Dewoskin
Empress Orchid by Anchee Min
The Fifth Book of Peace by Maxine Hong Kingston
Tai Chi for Staying Young by Master Lam Kam Chuen

You can believe that I'll be adding tai chi to my daily workout routine.

Thank you, Book Giver.

Hi Eddy-

My name is Evo, a graduated student from U.C. Berkeley. I first learned about you and your case through my friend Junichi. I wrote you this poem last semester and along with a card full of support from a student organization known as the Asian Pacific Council, I tried to mail this to you, but somehow it was returned. I just wanted to let you know that your story motivates me to start law school next year and to continue to learn as much as I can about our community. Stay strong.


You who bloomed
With back against stonewalls
You who grew beneath
The hail of tumbling ceilings
How do your vines
Scale the rubble with such grace?

I wonder
We who have no home/homeland/
No security
Yet branded threat to homes and homeland security
We who have undressed our confessions
In repenitentiaries
Where is our redemption?

We who stagger but do not fall
When we are showered with fists
Sliced open with words
Rooted and uprooted
Until leaves wither in abyss
Not sun
How different are we from the
Palestinian North Korean

Yet despite
Who's petals push through concrete
Louder in the quiet
More vivd in the darkness
Never stop growing
For how shall we learn to blossom
Without you?
