Poetry. ARCHING INTO THE AFTERLIFE presents us with an unusual critique of the nature of freedom, a spiritual journey through madness and hell, a coda to dead Cubans, and, above all, the song of an apostate who finds "God's face receding" from a land "full of innocence/ and a comfortable slumber." In Medina we find a constant tension between despair and hope, between the insensate and the blessing of empathy, between a cold death and the cleansing of dead winter. What Carthage was to St. Augustine, Trenton, New Jersey, is to Pablo Medina.
