“This compelling collection speaks with firm tenderness to the inner-struggle of human agency that we all feel, caught between our resoluteness and our limitations, especially during these trying times. Through Aguero's arresting metaphors and intimate yet oracular voice, these poems feel like lucid dreams that we don't merely read, we experience as if they were our very own.
