Poetry. Translated from the Spanish by Luis Silva. These poems deal with the loss of loved ones and the grief that follows. These poems create space. The space created is a way to live while grieving is happening or maybe it is a way to grieve while living is happening. This is Luna Miguel's second book translated into English and published by Scrambler Books (BLUEBIRD AND OTHER TATTOOS, 2012). This book was originally published as Los estómagos in Spain in March 2015 by La Bella Varsovia.
