Poetry, chapbook, 26 pages, from Glass Poetry Press.
"Stunningly lyrical, Steven Sanchez' poems explore profound questions of ethnic and sexual identity in context of social and cultural history. They search for authentic spiritual and physical connection, and they celebrate language in all its forms — including the intensely eloquent language of the human body. 'I watched winter enter / and leave my body,' writes the poet, 'transforming / words into something visible, / almost tangible, like Adam"s left / hand that will never reach God.' This is a beautifully transformative book. I will read it again and again."
-Corrinne Clegg Hales, author of To Make it Right
"In unpacking moments of conflict and joy, To My Body becomes an ode to both the physical body and the body of experiences lived through."
-José Angel Araguz, author of The Friday Influence
