The child of both the Jewish and Puerto Rican diasporas, Romeo Romero writes themself a place to exist in their first collection of poetry. As a mixed race, mixed class, and mixed gender person, they have learned to forge belonging beyond the binaries that structure so much of the western world. Here you’ll find the writings of a historically displaced person uncovering/growing/watering roots within their own body and spirit, because it’s the only place they’ve got left.
