'X' for Linh Dinh

T. Renner, "'X' for Linh Dinh," 2010, acrylic on paper, 5" x 7".

Linh Dinh is a poet who was born in Vietnam in 1963 and moved to the US in 1975. Here are a few lines from his poem "Static and Hiss":
Humble, well-endowed, hard working

American, fresh off the boat immigrant,

Descendant, goddamn it, from the Mayflower
