Arachnid Verve focuses on the acrobatic nature of the genred and gendered multilingual lifestyles found in the Southwest. These are poems of movement and balance-searching for equilibrium between the mundane, utilitarian elements of working class life and the flourishes of color and spice inherent to artist expression. Individual poem inspirations run the gamut--from Aztec gods, dredging machines, Judd Nelson, punk rock bands, and Zora Neale Hurston. The collection also code switches between three different languages: Spanish, English, and Numu tekwapu (Comanche) because Southwestern life is not lived in a single language.
