32 poems (16 in English, 16 in Chinese) collaged from screenshots of found text scraped off of buildings, signages, and other city construction from the Google street view of Monterey Park, a neighborhood in the San Gabriel Valley region of Los Angeles with a dense Chinese-American population. These poems were self-published both through print and web. A total of 8 publications were printed at home, hand-bound using the slot-and-tab technique, then anonymously distributed at various locations throughout the city. Together with the website, the resulting collages function as maps for poetically navigating the neighborhood.
