Poetry: In Another Life by Saúl Hernández
A prose poem guided by the touch, blood, faith, and obligation, Saúl Hernández has woven a delicate tapestry of lace with language. Writing that is equal parts revealing as it is visceral, Hernández invites us into a world that straddles the lines of what is real and what lives in mythos.
