In this collection, the first of the young poet Carlomar Arcangel Daoana, the writer speaks from the border-zones of suffering and bliss. In poem after haunting poem, we are shown that what is repudiated is most loved, and what the self loses is what is most foundational to its existence… desire, like happiness, is always to be smuggled from the outside, from the margins where both identity and difference lie. This is published as part of the UP Press's Student Edition line designed to bring the best of Philippine literature within easy reach of the general public.
