By Jon Marcelino Pineda
In Jon Pineda’s debut assortment Birthmark, loss takes the form of a scar, reminiscence the form of a early life, and id the form of a birthmark on a lover’s thigh. Like water taking the shape of its box, Pineda’s poems swell to fill the strains of his reports. opposed to the backdrop of Tidewater, Virginia’s crabs and cicadas, Pineda invokes his mestizo—the Tagalog note for being part Filipino—childhood, weaving laments for a tenuous paternal dating and the lack of a sibling. Channeling those fragmented thoughts right into a new discovery of self, Birthmark reclaims an id, soft but unrelenting, with plaintive tones marked both by way of ache, mirrored image, and redemption.
