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. Vertiz'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. Vertiz'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.
