Poetry. "'Everything beautiful occurs when the body / is suspended,' Helena Mesa quotes a performance artist who hangs his own pierced body in the air. Mesa's poems are artfully suspended between lyric and narrative, between humans and animals, between Latin America and the U.S., between desire and the difficulty of its fulfillment. HORSE DANCE UNDERWATER is an inventive, musical, and powerful debut"--Mark Doty.
