Painting Circles

Translated by Julio César Aguilar

Painting Circles is a tightly written book of poems that knits together an assortment of dark subjects: loss of innocence, loss of God and faith, death and oblivion. The book outlines a process of redemption that is initiated with the poet’s embrace of the void. Filling his spiritual canvas with circles, submerging his eyes in an acid bath of zeroes, he cleans his vision. Directing his thoughts to elemental things such as light, sound, water, night; by dismantling, and then reconstructing them, the poet remakes himself and the world.

Painting Circles is a bilingual book; each poem is presented in its original English with the Spanish translation on the corresponding page.
