Presented in a bilingual format that honors the poet's native Spanish language, this collection of poems represents a deep and spiritual inner-journey, taking on themes of femininity, desire, writing, and corruption. Exposing both the dark truths of female stereotypes and politics, the poems are bold and resonant.
