Do no longer brush aside this assortment as “domestic poetry,” “women’s verse.” although grounded in seasonal rhythms and usual settings, it really is as energetic, as reflective, as vital as any man’s.

Like water taking the shape of its box, Pineda’s poems swell to fill the traces of his reports. opposed to the backdrop of Tidewater, Virginia’s crabs and cicadas, Pineda invokes his mestizo—the Tagalog observe for being part Filipino—childhood, weaving laments for a tenuous paternal courting and the lack of a sibling. Channeling those fragmented thoughts right into a new discovery of self, Birthmark reclaims an identification, soft but unrelenting, with plaintive tones marked both through soreness, mirrored image, and redemption.
