3 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 321 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This latest collection from the premier Puerto Rican poet of our day dances in your hands as it illuminates Latin American/Caribbean culture in the U.S. and abroad." "A native of Puerto Rico who grew up in New York during the fifties, Cruz seeks out the most disparate images, ideas, people, and finds in them confluence, rather than conflict. Utilizing a system of Caribbean syntheses, he meditates on his native soil and its diaspora. Inspired by Latin American oral traditions and literature and diverse northern poetics, he melts these influences into a tapestry, creating a unique North American contemporary style truly his own."--Jacket
