Crossing Mexico embraces multiple perspectives: Mayan, mixed race, neo-colonial and others, not least of all my own, an Anglo-American from the north. I sought to write with a telling delicacy of precision and understanding. Multiplicities are at the heart of my poetry. I am many and my different selves both harmonize and jar with ambient environments, nomadic in crossing Mexico, on foot or by bus. The object is neither to blend or to shock but to allow differences their scope.
