packed with the nuanced attractiveness and complexity of the everyday—a pot of beans, a goat carcass, embroidered linens, a grandfather’s cancer—A Tongue within the Mouth of the death trips in the course of the inherited worry of production and destruction. The histories of South Texas and its humans spread in Laurie Ann Guerrero’s stirring language, together with the dehumanization of guys and its effects on girls and kids. Guerrero’s tongue turns into a palpable border, occupying these liminal areas that either unite and divide, inviting readers to think about that that is identified and unknown: the physique. Guerrero explores not only the precise, however the skill to talk and struggle for oneself, one's little ones, one's community—in poems that testify how, too usually, we miss out on the ability mirrored within the mirror.
