Kelly Xio (b. 1989) is a poet and performance artist living in the DMV.  Kelly loves the smell of fresh green figs and that initial gust of sticky glutinous air when the rice is done cooking. Poetry is the love of her life and the one who got away and the one she'll never get over. Kelly is a late-bloomer and only recently found a lust for life in watching plants emerge from seed. When asked how it feels to be alive, Kelly remarked "TBH, it hits different than my last life."
