I really enjoyed the freshness, the freedom, and the no holds barred of Gabriela's poetry. Like a breath of fresh air. I love how she plays with her titles, sometimes independent of the poems themselves, the illustrations in each section, the way she touches on all world places and cultures, her poems about Mexico City in English!, her sense of experimentation and fearlessness. And the authority with which she uses the word fuck!
