Composed in English, Spanish, and Spanglish, these important poems reflect on the lives of immigrants/ emigrants, our restless spirits, and the human journey. “I called my poetics, una poética norteada, alien, nomadic. This term, norteada/o, describes a person who is lost while pursuing a destination. To be lost is of great artistic, political and existential value, since that lost person seeks a way out, knowing in the process that getting on the right road is not necessarily a destination.”
