Yuxing Xia is a scientist by day, poet by daydream. His work has been published or is forthcoming from Strong Verse, Society of Classical Poets, Boston Literary Magazine, Otoliths, Pantheon Magazine, Star*line, Eunoia Review and elsewhere (see yuxingxia.wordpress.com). He also really likes boards that promote justice such as the washboard. Like really, all kinds of flat boards.
