Poetry. Poet Sam Pereira has recently published a collection of poetry called A CAFE IN BOCA. "Reading Sam's poems is a little like falling down a magic rabbit hole: the world you thought you knew gets rearranged and what you're likely to encounter is 'pain or the funniest thing in America,' often both in the same moment. Sam has a certain dead-pan way of inventing stories in a lingo that makes them all the more remarkable. He's an original"--Peter Everwine.
