Poem Publication: "Homecoming" / by Janine Joseph

Issue 20 of Drunken Boat is live! Thank you to the editors for giving my poem, "Homecoming," a home. From Michelle Chan Brown's introduction to the poetry in this issue: 

"Janine Joseph continues this resistance of 'rot' when she explodes the conventions of the immigrant narrative: 'Am I some sort of hero / —carrying in and unpacking the boxes / I always packed for home? Bringing the visas, / then the vista, / and so much useless, sedimentary knowledge to bore / the company for years.'"
