Marilyn Chin: THE FLORAL APRON GRUEL back to the Fat Poetry Book Index
THE FLORAL APRON The woman wore a floral apron around her neck,
that woman from my mother's village
with a sharp cleaver in her hand.
She said, "What shall we cook tonight?
Perhaps these six tiny squid
lined up so perfectly on the block?" She wiped her hand on the apron,
pierced the blade into the first.
There was no resistance,
no blood, only cartilage
soft as child's nose. A last iota of ink made us wince. Suddenly, the aroma of ginger and scallion fogged our senses, and we absolved her for that moment's barbarism. Then she, and elder of the tribe, without formal headdress, without elegance, deigned to teach the younger about the asian plight. And although we have traveled far we would never forget that primal lesson -on patience, courage, forbearance, on how to love squid despite squid, how to honor the village, the tribe, the floral apron. GRUEL Your name is Diana Toy. And all you may have for breakfast is rice gruel. You can't spit it back into the cauldron for it would be unfilial.

    Virtual Tour
    Although more than two years have passed since the building that houses Congregation Beth Israel was rebuilt, many visitors will still remember our old building, for the generations of simchas, shabbats, and celebrations that echoed in the walls. It was not without sadness that we rebuilt our synagogue. We hope with time new memories will saturate this new building, too.
    Our first building housed Congregation Beth Israel for eighty years. It was heimish despite the termites and the foundation that no longer met state codes for structural safety. The designers of the new building made every effort to maintain it's look and feel. Let us take you through it now.
    On the right of the vestibule, you will find the administrative office and to the left the rabbi's study. Above the entry in the vestibule, we left a portion of our building intentionally unfinished as a zecher lechurban, a commemoration of the absence of our Temple in Jerusalem. Even as we dedicate our beautiful new building for communal gathering, study and prayer in Berkeley, we recall our collective history and the destruction of our Temple in Jerusalem nineteen hundred and thirty-four years ago.
    One of the more striking features in the entryway is the wood carved Tzedakah Box, a replica of the one which stood in the entry to the wooden synagogue in Przedborz Poland. It evokes the memory of the lost spectacular handcrafted wooden Eastern European synagogues, which are no longer extant, and recommits us to the same values and traditions. With this remarkable connection to our historical past, we remind ourselves when entering of the concept and indeed mitzvah that before beginning our own spiritual pursuits we must first consider the physical wants of those in need. The funds deposited here will be used for needy individuals, as well as welfare and social action organizations.

        Biography / Criticism
        Activist poet Marilyn Chin was born in Hong Kong in 1955, where her father ran a restaurant. As a child, Chin immigrated to the United States and was raised in Portland, Oregon. Chin received her B.A. in Chinese Literature from the University of Massachusetts (1977) and a M.F.A from the University of Iowa (1981). Chin is the author of three distinguished collections of poetry, including Dwarf Bamboo (Greenfield Review Press, 1987)

    NEWS AUTHORS BUY BOOKS ... HOME MARILYN CHIN Born in Hong Kong in 1955, poet Marilyn Chin came to the United States soon after with her family. One of the first signs of the change in location was her father's insistence that her name be changed from Mei Ling to Marilyn. "He thought it was necessary for us to change our names when we went to school," she said. In the poem "How I Got That Name: an essay on assimilation" she remembers her father as a man obsessed with the blonde bombshell of the day-Marilyn Monroe. She added that her sister's name was changed to May Jayne, for another star, Jayne Mansfield. And while Chin says she now accepts the name and no longer seeks to change it, she remains an activist poet who sees herself pitted against the dominant culture in which she lives. "The poets I read when I was younger were Adrienne Rich, June George... activists who took me under their wing," she said. "I think it's very important to have an activist voice in American poetry." She also noted that her take on poetry included the central philosophy that poetry must do something. "I don't quite believe in art for art's sake. I believe there must be a higher order. What we write can change the world. That may sound a little idealistic but I feel it's very important that poetry make something happen."

    In "Furious Versions," Lee asks the question: "How, then, may I / speak of flowers / here, where / a world of forms convulses / here, amidst / drafts" (City 18-19). Lee writes in a later stanza: "behind the sound / of trees is another / sound.... it / ties our human telling / to its course / by momentum, and ours / is merely part / of its unbroken / stream, the human / and otherwise simultaneously / told. The past / doesn't fall away, the past / joins the greater / telling and is" (City 26). In "A Final Thing" (City 72-74), Lee identifies the origins of the "greater telling" in an oral and dialogic language in which he participates.

    Chin, Marilyn

    Reviewed by Ken Weisner, U.C. Santa Cruz
    [Ken Weisner teaches writing at U.C. Santa Cruz. He edits both Quarry West through Porter College at U.C.S.C., and Sifrut, the semi-annual literary supplement of The San Francisco based Jewish Bulletin. There are multiple exiles in this new poetry of Marilyn Chin's, but none so engrossing and fulfilling as their flights into formtheir miraculous crossings into language. "Truly, there are higher vistas, better gazebos,/ miraculous avenues beyond these closed doors// ...on regret road we must not tarry," sings the narrator of "Exile's Letter" (" after the failed revolution "). Multiple exiles (political, cultural, familial, linguistic) haunt Chin's poems which in turn somehow shimmer with strong, often brilliant voicings. This is not a poetry of longing, rather one of satiation and determinationless the groan of being under the thumb of empire, and more the insistence (the "barbaric yawp") and the compassion of Whitman: "Lover, on Tienanmen Square, near the Avenue of Eternal Peace/ ...Let me place my mouth over your mouth,/ let me breathe life into your life/ let me summon the paired connubial geese/ from the far reaches of the galaxy/ to soar over the red spokes of the sun's slow chariot/ and begin again" ("Beijing Spring").
