Brief Description

Medina’s poetry is always attuned to the nature of beauty and longing, particularly for his native Cuba, and for the wondrous journeys (and emotions) he has experienced or imagined. The burning questions of spirituality and fulfillment weigh heavily on this latest collection as the speaker grapples with the melancholia of doubt, desire and despair: “Panther, panther, let the slaughter come,/ let the truth be learned, let the bullet/ blossom in you like the flower of forgetfulness.”
