Mexican poet Alejandro Albarrán Polanco joins poet and translator Rachel Galvin to talk about his chapbook, Cowboy & Other Poems, from Ugly Duckling Presse. About Cowboy & Other Poems, Maricela Guerrero writes “Prosthesis poems raising questions about the means by which the discourse of terror erodes our conversations. Piles of poems bursting into piles of words, crashing against the univocal: Albarrán’s work is an ensemble of voices resonating from the most sincere tenderness to the most terrible and terrifying ways in which the contemporary world of crime and horror is narrated. In this book a cowboy gallops on a thousand prairies of senseless sense, carrying us mounted on the rump, expectant.”
