Daniel Lin

LoFi Naturalism

A clotted conversation
In the municipal park
Under clarifying rain.
Our intentions were stellar;
The production was ultra
Low budget (coffee and gum);
The words were plain, part rehearsed,
And said unbeautifully.
The feelings engendered were
Severe and unexpected.

Daniel Lin has poems in the current issues of Octopus , Sink Review and Notre Dame Review. He edits the NYC-based small press, Love Among the Ruins, which publishes an online journal and poetry chapbooks.
