SOFT TEETH is a rumination on the mouth as an integral and strange part of existence. By exploring the different aspects of the human mouth, Dacy Lim’s poetry gives the reader space to consider the importance of their own features. The poems from SOFT TEETH bring the reader into a world where mouths are gross and beautiful, physical and philosophical- a work that engages with written text to explore the nuances of orality.
Dacy Lim is a poet with a bachelor’s degree in Literature and Creative Writing from California State University, Long Beach. She is currently in the Creative Writing MFA program at Kingston University and is focusing on an even more extensive collection of poems on the mouth. Dacy self publishes zines and chapbooks which combine writing, illustration, and photography. She has had poetry published in Bank-Heavy Press and Selfish magazine.
