a poetics of suspicion: Chicana/o poetry and the new

from puerto de sol:

...one must have a politically and economically viable identity in order to willingly lose it, to throw it to the wind. Those who say that for aesthetic reasons identity is dead, fragmented, or passé, often have a viable identity
they do not need to worry about. Being invisible or visible as a white male
is quite different than being invisible or visible as a Chicana/o.

J. Michael Martinez & Jordan Windholz
