Poet and performer Edwin Torres’s extraordinary new book emerges in five riveting sections with a thematic undercurrent examining the body, love, journey, direction, and talk. These poems, intimate and expansive, use lyrical tone as an entry into communication, allowing experimental pieces and quiet poems to coexist. Black-and-white art illuminates the text and contributes to the lingual density while adding a figurative translation to the work. The overall sense is one of internal combustion, a sensory experience within the allegory of the human condition.

Praise

The poet writes the poet’ in a brilliant rhizomic diary/journey, chants, private lyric, surreal prose. A rich new tome, give a thunderous applause.
