Poetry. Latinx Studies. BLUE WHALE PHENOMENA uses various poetic forms, e.g., documentary, speculative, surrealism, infused with dark humor, suffering, the comical, the taboo, as well as literary devises such as metaphors and similes, in incredibly unique and strange ways, to shed a light on human cruelty, loss and death. Death is an obsession that permeates throughout this collection, but hope also abounds.
