Erin Kong's debut collection begs the question: How does one mourn a memory unforgotten? "korean mourning rituals" dissects the psyche and mythology of the Korean American act of sorrowing, and pageants the lived experience of an Asian American womxn as unwilling subject to ornamentalism and the ongoing colonization of the body. Kong's poems lament the emotional and psychological aftermath of war as it carries through the bloodline and beyond borders.
