ABOUT THE POET
“Part satirist, part ecopoet, part elegist, but every bit a luminous poet, Ariel Francisco brilliantly voices the complex intersections of the physical, emotional, and natural landscapes that define our sense of place and belonging, as well as our feelings of alienation and ennui.”
–Richard Blanco, Presidential Inaugural Poet, author of How to Love a Country
Ariel Francisco’s work has appeared in The New Yorker, The Academy of American Poets, The American Poetry Review, and elsewhere. A poet and translator born in the Bronx to Dominican and Guatemalan parents and raised in Miami, he is the author of the poetry collections A Sinking Ship is Still a Ship and All My Heroes Are Broke. He lives in Queens.
