“OFFERING” by Cassandra Myers
Sarah Tsiang on “OFFERING”
This dense poem invites and then halts, brings you close and then shuts the door. This poem doesn’t let you skip the queue, rather it takes you between homes and borders, longing and separation. “Offering” is a deep and aching look at what tears us apart and brings us together.
