poesia local con esencia global
by Miguel Robles

Hot off the Press!

A bilingual edition (Spanish/English) from a dynamic new voice in the San Francisco poetry scene. Opening with poems reminiscent of Robles' Mexican roots we travel with the poet to his current life as an immigrant in the Mission district. Through a fresh perspective Robles probes politics, dreams, and what it is to be human in a sometimes harsh, urban world. Filled with original imagery and word play, this collection will inspire you to action and leave you wanting more from this energetic, sometimes fierce, yet often tender, contemporary poet.

English translations by Virginia Barrett.

"At 24th & Mission"


What a joy it is to discover an emerging poet who writes with a passion for words and a passion in life! Mexico City-born Miguel Robles brings to San Francisco poetry a stunning new voice, beautifully translated by Virginia Barrett. Robles already is in the enduring tradition of Pablo Neruda, and this book will be seen as his memorable debut. Auguri!!!
