Description - Controlled Decay by Gabriela Jauregui
Gabriela Jauregui's debut poetry collection is animated by a rich sense of language's polyglot permeability, which she uses to explore the interpenetration of manifold cultural spaces, from the sublime to the grotesque. These poems emerge from points of connection and slippage where present and past, human and animal, converge. In all her poems, Jauregui's street savvy and sensual attention to words incorporate her responses to the world that surrounds us.
