Poems that engage with the landscape of mangrove forests.

Mangrove forests grow on coastlines, with root systems that hold them upright in the unstable grounds where land and water meet. That Salt on the Tongue to Say Mangrove draws on the in-between nature of these trees to explore spaces between–between a foot and the floor, a cup of coffee and its dish, a face and the shoulder of a couple on a motorbike. These are poems that dwell in the tidal movement between saying and what’s left unsaid.

Reviews
"Silvina López Medin has a very distinct, absolutely refreshing poetics. She observes desire and consciousness through an empowered and conscientious voice that feels both authentic and astute. Her poems are both grounded and philosophical, displaying gifts for meditative movement and structure, and amazing turns of phrase. They wonderfully deconstruct and mull notions of domestic intimacy. Her poems shape a sensibility that is both natural and speculative, contemplative and wild." –Terrance Hayes
