Poetry. African & African American Studies. Latinx Studies. Garcia's third poetry collection, [ELEGIES], centers on love, grief, legacy, racism and history. These lyric poems range from an ode to Allen Iverson's crossover on Michael Jordan, to an original form called a "mixtape" featuring lines from today's most well-known poets, to a twenty-poem sequence of elegies dedicated to his grandmother, to an essay on police terror, to name a few. The poet explores the complexities of modern life and death through his clear, unflinching, embodied perspective.
