by Janine Oshiro
"Seeking to identify the self that straddles both spiritual and physical worlds, Janine Oshiro's multidimensional poems are borderlands—wild and uncontained—where vision and illusion become crucial to survival. Pier is a place of frenzied collision where human industry meets feral ocean, a place of arrivals, departures, and transitions. Within these unique architectures, lyric intensity abounds and our identities discover a common landscape". [catalog description]
