By Vickie Vértiz

Palm Frond with Its Throat Cut uses both humor and sincerity to capture moments in time with a sense of compassion for the hard choices we must make to survive. Vértiz's poetry shows how history, oppression, and resistance don't just refer to big events or movements; they play out in our everyday lives, in the intimate spaces of family, sex, and neighborhood. Vértiz's poems ask us to see Los Angeles--and all cities like it--as they have always been: an America of code-switching and reinvention, of lyric and fight.
