ldquo;Riacute;osrsquo;s verse inhabits a country of his own making, sometimes political, often personal, with the familiarity and pungency of an Arizona chili.rdquo;- The Christian Science Monitorldquo;Alberto Riacute;os is . . . arguably the best Latino poet writing in English today.rdquo;- Prairie SchoonerAlberto Riacute;osrsquo;s new poems-magical wormholes through mundane reality-create an improbably true space where human bodies fall through floorboards, prickly feelings of limbs ldquo;fallen asleeprdquo; are stars buzzing under the skin, and ironed shirts hanging in a closet take on a foreboding sense of danger. Together they are a book of magical realism and cultural physics seeking the ldquo;also-momentrdquo;-the probable and imaginative directions a single moment might become. ldquo;Science may be our best way of understanding the world,rdquo; Riacute;os writes in one poem, ldquo;but it may not be our best way of living in it.rdquo;The shirt in my closet is dangerous. I shouldnrsquo;t have ironed it.Because I have, I will put it on. If I put it on, I will be dressed.If I am dressed, I will be drawn toward the door, The door and not the couch-the door . . .Alberto Riacute; os is the author of nine books of poetry, three collections of short stories, and a memoir.
