Poems that explore kinship with the natural and constructed world, personal anguish, and individual wonder.
Part of the South American Series, Senal.
Sabrina Ramos Rubén’s first English publication, translated by S. Yates Gibson, explores wild landscapes and architectural ruins, personal anguish and individual wonder. These poems are minimalist and visceral, cutting to the heart of Ramos Rubén’s subjects through first-person narration sowed with eroticism, familial (dis)connection, and Caribbean flora and fauna. In a time of global climate change, Ramos Rubén’s is a voice from a colonized part of the world especially vulnerable to environmental disasters, and her poetry treads new ground between humanity, kinship, and nature.
