Overview

A native of Puerto Rico who grew up in New York, Cruz seeks out the most disparate of images, ideas, people, and finds in them confluence, not conflict. Inspired by Latin American oral traditions and literature and diverse northern poetics, he melts these influences into a tapestry, creating a unique North American contemporary poetic mode.

With the power of a tropical storm, Cruz presents a birds-eye view of the crisscrossing cultures in Latin America, the Caribbean, Los Angeles, and the Lower East Side. Many passages contemplate the tropical landscape concurrently with images of the urban landscape. Included are works in Spanish and English.
