A doe, a deer, a dumbed down/Democracy
By Anthony Veasna So
Anthony Veasna So is a queer “man,” a Cambodian-American “son,” and a recent graduate of Stanford University. A native of Stockton, CA, he was raised on stories of the Khmer Rouge Genocide that often, somehow, ended on a joke. His prose and comics have appeared in decomP, Hobart, Nashville Review, Ninth Letter, and elsewhere. He currently teaches high school English, dabbles in standup comedy, and serves as a prose reader for The Adroit Journal. Follow him @fakemaddoxjolie.
