"Laurie Ann Guerrero is a poet whose poems are interested in language as a method of recording creation and destruction ...her poems risk showing beauty where beauty has been overlooked. They uncover terror where we were afraid to look for it.... a body of many houses, languages, allegiances, histories, and it is this strikingly rendered complexity that makes it harder for us to dismiss one another, which is to say imagination and empathy are so often at the core of her poems, but butcher knives, too, are at the cores of her poems."
-Aracelis Girmay, author of Kingdom Animalia
