Ernesto Trejo is a poet of mysteries and incarnations, of secret unnamed presences, of the magical interior spaces of childhood and the luminous floating world that flares and throbs, that burns in time. His poems struggle to defy nothingness and death by recreating other lives, by letting other stories enter into his own story, by seeking communion with the lost and marginal, the otherwise forgotten by witnessing, imagining, and remembering. The dark impassioned poems of Entering a Life are wholly alive to the Whitmanian imperative: “Who touches this, touches a man.”
