    One thought on “Posada: Offerings of Witness and Refuge”

    1. Review originally published on my blog ifyoucanreadthis.wordpress In the four sections of her first poetry collection, Posada- Offerings of Witness and Refuge, Xochitl-Julisa Bermejo takes us with her through the multiple, imaginative and too real border spaces of migration, language and belonging.

Starting with the stolen metate they brought from Teocaltiche, Bermejo connects the memor [...]

    2. For those who think poetry is all butterflies and sunsets, Bermejo offers these gritty poems of Mexican-American life, of people dying in the desert, of her grandmother grinding corn in her metate for tortillas, of love, and of legends.

    3. I just finished reading this today and I have no words. This book is delicate yet strong in a quiet way that really impacts you to your core. I love poetry and words that can make you feel something with so little. There’s something very powerful about that and these poems truly do that.

    4. A fresh collection of poetry that connects the poet's family experience to the desert of Arizona. Strong and unforgettable images lace through these poems and render the reader humbled and honored to have shared these words from the poet's soul. A grand collection; the poems of the grandmother are best.
