Poetry. “Self love. Power. Shamelessness. Sexual curiosity. All of these are elements of the erotic that Alejandra Ibarra invokes in these poems. They speak to a yearning, a jonesin’, a hunger that feeds Chicana spirituality and sexuality…Their lyricism invokes the rhythm of the clave beat, as well as the repetition of a lover’s whisper…They are poems that provoke bodily reactions. You will blush and flush a reading them” – from the foreword by Eliza Rodriguez Y Gibson.
