"IF I TELL YOU THIS, PLEASE ASK ME WHY"
Xiao Xue is a poet who deliberated with herself for a solid thirty minutes (or twenty years) about where she can say she’s “from”, but can’t seem to decide. At the very beginning, it was Xinjiang, China. More recently, she lives in Kansas City, Missouri where a former shoe factory used to be, with a very sweet baker and a very old cat. There were many places in between—all of them were home at some point in time. Xiao Xue has been published in the Kiosk Magazine and hopes to be forthcoming somewhere someday soon.
