Poems in Spanish and English
Shaking Off the Dark journeys between the world of the self and the world of social conflict, moving easily from lyrical to playful to prophetic. It merges thoughtful poems on such topics as art, time, and love with angry poems about discrimination, oppression, and social ostracism.
