The bookish bato, Jacinto Jesus Cardona (“Jesse” de cariño) author of Pan Dulce, and educator in his 53rd year teaching, talks about growing up in a small Texas town and gives insight into his upcoming book, Amapola Song, A Cancion de mi Vida. Jesse, inspired by conceptual Mexican artist, Ulises Carrion, has been publishing zines, what he calls libritos, for half a decade. His first full-length book, by Plancha Press a division of INFRA, is a collection of poems recounting his childhood and experience as a writer.
We sat down for a charla with mónica teresa ortiz, the author of An Autobiography of a Semi Romantic Anarchist. While the panhandle wind blew violently in mónica’s background, we managed to discuss a myriad of topics, from how poetry fits into anarchism, to process and principles.
