"...I dab their eyes to stop their tears. Who could give up the ocean and not cry?" from "Romance at the Market."

“…who goes to poetry for safety anyway?” – J.D. Salinger (from Seymour: An Introduction)

Rachel Gray grew up in rural Nevada. Her work appears in the anthology Walang Hiya…Literature Taking Risks Toward Liberatory Practice. She is also a Kundiman fellow. Her poems explore ideas of food, television tourism, human trafficking and the embodied muse.  Despite her work’s serious subject matter, she’s still fun to be around.
