Description
In Cristina Rivera Garza's poems there are instant soups, orange plastic chairs, wedges of tangerines, flannel robes, sequins, mascara and laughter, a cashier hanging out change, fries, peppermint tea or orange tea or jasmine tea, Valium, two packs of Marlboro Lights, three-hundred aspirins, glasses of milk, plastic flowers, trash cans, metal desks, sardine cans, telephone wires, ambulances, jukeboxes. There are also characters such as the Big Woman, the Ex-Sleeping, the Ex-Dead, the Devil, the Beast, the Submerged, the Helpless, the Lonely, and those with Three Hearts Inside Their Chest.
