Teresa Mei Chuc, from Fractures, Red Thread. quote Teresa Mei Chuc poetry Red Thread out of my collection Fractures.

This collection of poems is largely autobiographical, telling the turning points in a life that began in war-torn Vietnam. Somehow, unlike many, Teresa and her family survived, although her parents were separated for a long time. She and her mother escaped Vietnam in a ship crowded with hungry, sick, and frightened immigrants, and in time they settled in California, bringing with them their nightmares, their memories, their history and culture. Family is a recurring and insistent theme in this book. Teresa devotes her art to her grandmother, her mother, her brother, her sons. Especially important is the relationship of mother and daughter.

misery
Chuc's achingly beautiful poems depict the consequences of the Vietnam War for Vietnamese children, wives and fathers in ways both powerful and hopeful. In rich imagery, the reader finds both the ravages of napalm and the unbreakable bond between a girl and her loving parents. A memorable read.
Zulkishicage
In the Red Thread, Theresa Mei Chuc stitches together her familial details of the Viet Nam Conflict with the sparseness of a refugee's comforts, so few and far between that they glisten like gemstones, and are worth their weight in Napalm. Chuc finds shards of beauty and divinity in the midst of suffering, buoyed by the strength one finds in survival.
