About Their Work:

The gallows humor of Vincent Rendoni’s poems “cut[s] through the keratin/cleaning & washing the lowest part/of working folk” while he helps his abeula cook up some plums and “a sheet pan of six songbirds” and “the smell of meat & fruit /fills the room” with song and bones,  axolotls, a collection of baby Jesus figurines, and dreams of Mayan mystics & Aztec warriors , or that the tío who is bad with money enjoying “his cheap thrills: /His OnlyFans accounts. Jack-in-the-Box tacos. /That thermos of Crown & Coke.” All these things that “shouldn’t live in a place so cold,/but they exist, despite logic or reason.” This is how he lures us in, with texture & sweetness, a warming presence and irreverence that like his abuela’s tamales “cannot be sped up. It cannot be optimized./It puts you into a corner. It cannot be stopped.”
