Xing is about fraught crossings: East versus West, doubt versus belief, conformity versus individuality, the external versus the internal world. These haunting, startling poems re-cast the world as we think we know it into playfully offbeat and idiosyncratic new molds. Using an array of voices—such as an answering machine, a Sixties sanitation worker, a post-war refugee, a marionette, and the head of a mannequin—Kuan reinvents the speaker’s voice as an entity that is unfixed, fragmented, peripatetic, and endlessly pleasurable to hear.
