Three-way Warning Poem
-- Table of Poems from Poem Finder® --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Publisher

The poems of Tato Laviera are complex and engaging, through his words, his spirits, his bilingualism, and his dual identity offer the reader poems that are a celebration of life and identity.

Wolfgang Binder, Professor at the University of Erlangen in the Federal Republic of Germany writes, "With AmeRícan, Tato Laviera confirms his excellent reputation as a vital poet and humanist. Laviera is postulating and defining the new America, humane America,’ but he will not be absorbed by a mythical melting pot."

I love Laviera he is one of the best poets of all time and really captures the Nuyorican and Latin@ experience in his work.
