“The poems of Black Blossoms tap into the waters of Lethe, as a bower uniting desire and mortality, history and the present, in tones alternately rapturous and threnodial—“What wonder to seduce with sound.” Rigoberto González alights on the darkest and most alluring flowers, “the beauty and grief of life,” and draws us down into its intoxicating sweetness.”
