'Like a thousand tiny teeth gnawing through language's tender membranes, BUTCHER'S TREE eats through the gloom of the visible world. Nocturnal, feral, and foraging, Chen's is a poetry whose 'purity strips the meat from inside.' Inside these mesmeric vaults, skins fuse and 'the cored body' grows rhizomes, burrowing into everything. The echolocating clicks and pops of Chen's alchemical practice make audible the astounding sound of our own 'hearts...growing teeth.'' Lara Glenum
'BUTCHER'S TREE is animal, foody, and thick with the materials of local and ancient and visionary worlds. My favorite parts feel ripped from the myths and tales and fables I might have known once upon a time, waving like strange numinous laundry on the line of Feng Sun Chen.' Ariana Reines'
