Compelling Outward Flight

subatomic parts:
to those miniscule creatures
how vast our bodies must seem

great unknown regions
my being a distant void
compelling their outward flight

Shelly Bryant splits her time between Singapore and Shanghai, working as a teacher, freelance writer, researcher, and student of Chinese language and culture. Her first volume of poetry, Cyborg Chimera, was released by Sam’s Dot Publishing in October 2009, and her second volume, Under the Ash, is due to follow in late 2010. Shelly loves to read, write, cycle, and travel, and enjoys the opportunities for all of these that her present migratory lifestyle affords.
