annex series #2
I don’t know how to write about a trauma that is not mine, yet invisibly and with utmost uncertainty, I have inherited its wounds. I don’t know how to write about a wound that I cannot see, a wound that I don’t remember receiving, a wound that is often forgotten but somehow felt.
I am thinking about how, as Korean-American writers, there seems to be an invisible thread that somehow tethers us along a common trajectory, common ghosts and conjurations. at we can understand implicitly a combination of real and felt trauma and suffering, perceived trauma and suffering, and also an invisible trauma and suffering, a trauma that is not ours, a trauma that is not mine, yet somehow corrupts ours thoughts and feelings and actions daily.
