Lao American poet Bryan Thao Worra's "The Last War Poem" featured at SEARAC 40 & Forward
In time for Memorial Day Weekend, "The Last War Poem" by Lao American poet Bryan Thao Worra is now up at the 40 & Forward: Southeast Asian Americans Rooted & Rising blog organized by the Southeast Asian Resource Action Center in Washington DC. This is an ongoing effort to look at the various ways we have responded to our journey during the Southeast Asian diaspora that begin for many in 1975.
"The Last War Poem" was featured in 2014 at the Southeast Asian Globe and was also recently performed live by the acclaimed Catzie Vilayphonh in Philadelphia in a stirring performance at the Asian Arts Initiative.
This poem was dedicated to those who served, those who fell, those who remain, and those whose duty it is to remember.
