Seven (3: A Taos Press, 2013) www.3taospress.com

My second collection, Seven, (3: A Taos Press, 2013) deals primarily with trauma and recovery.

Winner of the Andres Montoya Poetry Prize for her first book, Pity the Drowned Horses, Sheryl Luna, in Seven, creates a breathtaking world of external and internal landscapes defining the particular landmarks of home, culture, place, and personal history along the U.S.-Mexican border of El Paso, Texas and Ciudad Juarez. Divided into seven sections, which tie into the seven sins and virtues, Seven moves between English and Spanish effortlessly and accessibly. In crossing many borders and boundaries, these poems ask each person to notice. To speak out. To feel compassion for those experiencing personal, cultural, or sexual abuse. And Seven offers hope of recovery.
