Description

Abeyta blends the contrasting rhythms of the English and Spanish languages, finding music in a simple yet memorable lyricism without losing the complexity and mystery of personal experience. His forty-two poems take the reader on a journey through a contemplative personal history that explores communal, political and societal issues as well as the individual experiences of family and friends. With his distinctive voice, Abeyta invites people of all cultures to enter his poems by exploring the essence of humanity as expressed by his particular Hispanic culture and heritage. Marked by intimacy and deep sentiment, Colcha not only acquaints us with the land of Abeyta's people, but also reveals the individuals from his life and family history in the most colourful and delicate detail. Abeyta's reflections on the plight, loves, joys, failures, and exploitation of the common person in such poems as 'cuando se secan las acequias', 'untitled (verde)', and 'cinco de mayo' belong to the literary heritage of such poets as Pablo Neruda, Federico Garcia Lorca, and Wait Whitman.
