“The Other End” & other Poems by Averylin Cummins

Averylin is a high school student, athlete, and activist; a third generation Taiwanese-American seeking to reconnect with their culture; and an aspiring writer and poet who explores race, gender, and sexuality through their work, using it to observe and reflect not only the world but also their own experiences.

From Averylin: “Three Strong Emotions” started as a rant, typed sloppily into the notes app of my phone. I wrote “Anger” first, but it felt incomplete because that wasn’t the only emotion that was connected to my experience. It became almost a therapy exercise of sorts to break down and capture just what emotions I was feeling and what was causing them.”
