The winner of the Drinking Gourd Chapbook Poetry Prize, Rodney Gomez's collection Mouth Filled with Night employs familiar emblems of Mexican American identity to repeatedly subvert expectations while intensifying the dilemmas of affiliation. The poems run beyond more conventional ideas of agency, identity, and experience, creating a newly invigorated imaginative space. As a collection, Mouth Filled with Night gains particular momentum, a pitched anxiety that slowly grows throughout the volume to create a poetic experience unique to the chapbook form.
