“These Tectonic Movements are formatted as poems, but they are x-rays, magnetic resonances, observations that sometimes exclude that which is observed. For me, they are poetic suggestions, through and through. In lines of varying lengths: they present breaks in reality, cuttings of things, emotions, feelings, cuts made with the sharp edges of language” (Eduardo Casar).
