Resumen del Libro
The poems in this collection mix English and Spanish while tracing the ?kool logic? of culture in transit. Scuttling from free verse and limericks to d?cimas and terza rima, the poet is our guide on a transcultural tour through downtowns, suburbs, stockyards, shantytowns, power lunches, HMOs, open mics, and open sores. Fusing pop riffs, Beat whimsy, Nuyorican punch lines, and modernist deadpan, the poet in these pages is also the comedian, the visionary, the j?baro, the agitator, the theorist, the lounge singer, the slacker ? Puerto Rican poet and performer Urayo?n Noel has coined a new sort of pop artifact: a logic primer with laugh track, a tainted culture sampler, an urban ready-made of forms and voices designed to confound and delight the enlightened masses.
