From Cincinnati Review Editorial Assistant Taylor Byas:
Nancy Chen Long’s poem “Reverberation” (Issue 16.2) fights back against silence and erasure. The poem’s title points toward the resonance of sound, and this is exactly what Chen Long’s words do: even in stillness the music of her language ripples across the page.
