Four nationally acclaimed and emerging poets from diverse backgrounds and generations merge to create a remarkable collaboration. Carolina Hospital, Nicole Hospital-Medina, Holly Iglesias and Maureen Seaton call themselves “Tres abuelas y una mamá.” For two years these poets met once a week to tackle old and new ways of poetic experimentation. Through shared lines or shared themes, sonnets, pantoums, triptychs, and haibuns, this compilation takes on historical, civic, and domestic violence, mental health, and feminism. These masterful poems are political and existential, as well an intimate and spiritual. In an age of growing discord, this book’s transcendental force lies in its banded energy.
