Book Description: Carlos Reyes offers a lyrical and sometimes surreal vision of our world. The edgy tone of this collection represents a departure from his earlier work, but the omnibus quality of this book offers something for everyone. "Carlos ReyesÕ poetry is as clear and strong as his social conscience. One is always struck by his sensual and sensory qualities: the touch, taste, feel, color of things, and his ability to capture a mood, a world, in a handful of lines." -Carolyn KizerPoet and translator Carlos Reyes lives in Portland, Oregon when he is not traveling. He is the author of four previous collections including The Book of Shadows.
