I'm very happy to mention that some of my poems will appear in 6x6 #8, which should be out soon.

The poems from the sequence included in 6x6 are dedicated to my aunt and godmother, Maria Lourdes Parra Eichelbaum, who died in Caracas during the weekend of April 11, 2002.

Maritza told me countless stories about Caracas, a city she knew inside-out. She taught me the importance of memory, and of standing firm against seemingly insurmountable odds. Bendición, tía.
