Dark and Perfect Angels

Austin-American Statesman
The border between the United States and Mexico is a constant presence in Benjamin SŠenzís second book, a physical rift that becomes a metaphor for spiritual and psychological divisions. His poems blur the distinctions that clear lines and definitions imply; border arenít crossed so much as occupied. His strengths as a poet include candor, expansiveness, a capacity for wide and unsentimental sympathy and his ability to engage a complicated familial history without romanticizing its heroes or sorrows.
