Full Foreground

This poetry collection spans various terrains of desire along with complicated melancholy contemplations which rush beyond easy definitions of time and place. The events recorded here are already moving past the periphery and, as from a passenger window of a car speeding by, Tejada witnesses the almost ungraspable panorama of the Americas. All landscapes of political and social upheaval are flickering at the borders of physical and spiritual desire in this collection. The poems here tightly weave around the ominous political circumstances at the turn of the 21st  century, and merge with a robust intimacy as the poet treks across locales in lyric engagement beyond the industrial and political fetishizations of land.
