His evolution from national labor union leader in his native Haiti, to international spokesperson & representative... more

Relationships abound in this work; in the poem Geography we have a sustained metaphor covering a failing interaction. Again in Last Supper: “We face each other /eating our lean cuisine /that tastes a lot like crow /or our own words.” and in Revisions this: “in my saga, l grow /more heroic, able & smart /and you deplete /like used uranium.” There is even a personal relationship disaster in Collision Course.
If you’re looking for a cosmological question,... more

These poems are snapshots of life on that nuclear missile base which was high on the North Korean list of targets. Indeed, we were always on the alert for possible infiltrators who had come into South Korea and who were expected to be heading toward our camp. \t Although these poems can be look... more

by Ramon LoyolaIn this new collection of poetry, Ramon Loyola infuses his verses with the same sentimentality and poignancy evident in his debut work, not poems, just words.
