Poetry. Latinx Studies. José Angel Araguz's fourth full-length poetry collection, AN EMPTY POT'S DARKNESS, takes readers through a series of poetic sequences that engage with ideas of life, love, death, and friendship. Whether holding elegiac conversations with writers known personally or known only through reading; braiding the folklore of La Llorona with the narrative of a past relationship; or exploring concepts of mortality, these poems explore the nuances and depths of life eight lines at a time.
José Angel Araguz is a CantoMundo fellow and the author of seven chapbooks as well as the collections Everything We Think We Hear, Small Fires, and Until We Are Level Again. His poems, prose, and reviews have appeared in Crab Creek Review, Prairie Schooner, and The Bind. Born and raised in Corpus Christi, Texas, he runs the poetry blog The Friday Influence and teaches at Suffolk University in Boston where he is also the Editor-in-Chief of Salamander.Author City: LOWELL, MA USA
