I was commissioned by the Straits Times and Singapore’s National Arts Council to write a poem, “On the other side”  about the pandemic and what’s been going on. My piece came out today here 

It is also narrated as part of the “When all this is over” podcast also by Straits Times here alongside other writers’ takes on the pandemic.
