“Eric Tran’s Revisions revises more than words. These poems, with their restless forms and lexicons, needle themselves through the psyche; they suture and sear, harboring speakers of myriad aftermaths. True to a physician’s gaze, these poems, in their unflinching obsession with the renewal and failure of bodies, both tender and visceral at once, plant Eric Tran firmly in the long tradition of healer-wordsmiths, right alongside William Carlos Williams, Fady Joudah, and Rafael Campo. I love these poems. They teach me that revision, if nothing else, is a way to stave off forgetting, is a second chance. As such, how lucky we are to read Tran’s poems this early in what will soon be an unforgettable body of work.”
