Poetry. Literary Nonfiction. Latinx Studies. PANDEMIA & OTHER POEMS comes to the world as a salve to a trifecta of crises--border issues of children in cages and immigrants being held in tent cities to wait with little or no hope; a virus that has crippled the world forcing us to reevaluate and test our resolve as survivors; and the ongoing issue of police brutality stirring protests around the world. Vidaurre is a poet who wants to help people, and who works through the ghostly streets of uncertainty in the midst of this pandemia with dreams, hope--and love, always, there is love. There is a different quality to these poems, writes Odilia Galván Rodríguez, a maturity that comes with mas golpes de la vida.
