In honor of NaPoWriMo, this site offers a poem a day throughout the month of April. For this poem, Maggs Vibo works within the culture of her extended family. Her husband's family are Thai Chinese American.
This is a continuation of Vibo's Chinese Zodiac poetry. The poem works with the folklore of the Chinese Zodiac Series. For National Poetry Writing Month, the poem stays within the confines of a black and white color scheme, works to create a maze and use geometric patterns as a form of constraint-based visual poetry.
Ox Maze by Margaret Viboolsittiseri, 2021.
