Poetry. Latino/Latina Studies. MIRRORS FOR GOLD was written in Mexico City from 1988 to 1992. Today these poems speak directly—perhaps moreso given the time elapsed—to historical duration and the vicissitudes of cultural certainty. The title poem, a numbered series of fifteen pieces, examines the borders between and influences of political climate and intimacy. In the ever-receding present of MIRRORS OF GOLD, human debility and bodily promise play out an opulent scenario of surrender and defiance.
