Suelo Tide Cement began at a residency in Panama that brought together artists, scientists, activists, and community members to learn from and create with soil. Written serially in the midst of a development boom, the poem performs a compostual incantation, moving like water or bodies in a dance as it investigates questions of language, health, economy, and empire. Fragments make lyrics make a narrative make an epic. In its search for a meeting point between personal and geologic experiences, one is never sure whether the poem takes place in the flash of a second or whether whole eons of planetary time are tectonically drifting.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"In this period of construction and destruction, of economic development and ecological regression, of wealth and poverty, of jungle and cement, of all kinds of contradictions, Suelo Tide Cement was written. And that's what it's about."-JL Rodriguez Pitti, Literatura Panamena Hoy
"Fragments make lyrics make a narrative make an epic. Suelo Tide Cement is a path-breaking book that must invent its own language, its own form, its own approach to poetry in order to come into an off-centered world."-Kazim Ali
"Suelo Tide Cement is a beautiful earthworks meditation, a precise choreography, an offering embroidered with urgency and profound care."-Laynie Browne
