A fluid blend of poetic forms, Reacquaint urges the reader to look back at how far they have come. There is a clarity that becomes apparent as our earlier selves pass into the rearview, and Thung stands in this first light of distance reflecting back on all that has been said and done. Flowing through embodiment and illness, burgeoning adulthood, and the emotional detritus of loves lost and found, Thung’s poems are narrational and intimate. Peppered with questions and lines inviting introspection, Reacquaint tells one side of a story, leaving each reader to find their own You.
