sexoPUROsexoVELOZ and Septiembre is a bilingual edition of books two and three of the author's lifelong project entitled Dolores Dorantes. These works consist of fragmented interlocking sequences of poems that create a scaffolding to frame Dorantes’ vivid explorations of the intensely personal and intensely social questions that inhabit the space called “Dolores Dorantes.” Dorantes writes, “May be / I had to forget how…”; it is from within the particular experience she offers of forgetting how that we might, perhaps, begin to remember why.
