translated from the Spanish by David McLoghlin
Selected as the winner of the 2014 Chapbook-in-Translation Contest, Sign Tongue is a slippery, cacophonous, technical marvel of sonic poem-making, a truly contemporary look at liminal conflations of the self in an unendingly political world, and David McLoghlin's work to bring these poems into an exacting yet bursting-at-the-seams English is a tremendous feat.
