"what is more holy than this

                   gathering all that you love

    & asking it to feast on its own joy


the crunch of manna sounding like its own psalm


a soul stirrers serenade


               like sam ain’t ever left from this earth


    singing something bout six wings


& a lord of plenty"


- The Author Explains JJ's Fish & Chicken

"Mahung’s writing is smart, visceral and enthralled in a tone reminiscent of your cousin, your grandma, or the person you miss most."

Porsha Olayiwola, Boston Poet Laureate
