    This slim volume was so intense that it took me a long time to read it I mean that in a good way, as there was only so much one could absorb at one time I have used some of the poems in a prison writing group and they resonate in that environment so strongly Jimmy has the voice of people the wider culture tend to purposefully overlook and I am so grateful I found this little book.

    Baca writes with the power of knowing something important that not many people know, and they can t talk about it Count time is when the prisoners are counted, and this poem is about the lights out count time I hope you will never know.

    would actually give this collection 3.5 stars a bit gutwrenching to read, this book is important an essential reminder to the amnesiac in each of us who would rather forget the atrocities inflicted upon and by our ancestors and the restless and displaced spirits who have and continue to walk the ground beneath our feet being reminded of the immortality and spaciousness of the human soul, even under the most enslaved and atrocious conditions, was much appreciated.

    Phenomenal, raw, scathing, beautiful I stumbled upon Santiago Baca at the library and am instantly in love with his work The majority of these poems were written during his time in prison, and all the pain and hope of that time burns through Jimmy s words I highly recommend it to any fan of poetry, and I look forward to exploring Santiago Baca s work further.

    Brutality of prison life, but the beauty of the human soul on pulp.
