Thanks to the folks at the Asia and Pacific Writers Network and Cha for publishing my poem, "Spectral Questions of the Body." The issue also includes poems by Bryan Thao Worra and Shirley Lim. On another note, I think I've finished a new poem that I am calling "Sing," and I'm even making headway on arriving at a title for my second manuscript. I want it to have the word "acoustic" in the title. Etymology (from the Online Etymology Dictionary): 1605, from Fr. acoustique, from Gk. akoustikos "pertaining to hearing," from akoustos "heard, audible," from akouein "to hear," from copulative prefix a- + koein "to mark, perceive, hear," from PIE base *(s)keu- "to notice, observe."
