Fantasma

Poetry Chapbook

“Alfaro‘s Fantasma is filled with ghosts.
There are alternate takes, reimagined legends,
and survival myths. Alfaro is a poet who knows,
‘the job of resurrectors is to wake up the dead.’
Watch him take the ordinary bones of blue collar
lives and family histories, polishing them until
they reveal their many dazzling possibilities.”

– José Olivarez, author of Citizen Illegal
