Communion: I’ve had the good fortune to travel in my life. My first four collections: Chants, Borders, Communion and Agua Santa: Holy Water were written as individual poems. Communion has poems inspired by trips to India, Pakistan, the Dominican Republic, Peru, and, of course, Mexico.
I conceived the last two collections: Aunt Carmen’s Book of Practical Saints and Adobe Odes as whole book projects. I have worked on a seventh collection. Poetry inspires, challenges and comforts me. You?
