What People are Saying About This

Vern Rutsala

Quietly and steadily Carlos Reyes has been writing some of the finest poetry of his generation.

Carolyn Kizer

Reyes is one of our local and national treasures. His 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.
