QUINN LUI is a poet of Chinese descent who wrote this instead of sleeping at what would be considered a reasonable hour. Currently a student at the University of Toronto, they are more likely to be loitering in bookstores, getting overly invested in D&D characters they will never play, or spending too much money on milk tea than actually studying.

Their work has been published in Minetta Review, Nonbinary Review, Synaesthesia Magazine, and Occulum, among others, as well as profiled in Aspirants Magazine. You can find them on Tumblr, Twitter, and Instagram @flowercryptid.
