by José Angel Araguz


There is the story of the man who swallowed a fly and often found himself telling the tale: each time the story would bring the buzz into his throat, the legs and wings working, the muscles of his breath taking in a creature that comes back in the words he keeps finding reasons to share.


José Angel Araguz, author of the chapbook “Corpus Christi Octaves,” is a CantoMundo fellow. Winner of RHINO Poetry’s 2015 Editor’s Prize, he has had poems recently in Poet Lore, Apple Valley Review, and Pilgrimage as well as in the anthology Goodbye Mexico: Poems of Remembrance. He is pursuing a PhD in Creative Writing and Literature at the University of Cincinnati. His flash fiction/prose poem chapbook “Reasons (not) to Dance” is forthcoming from FutureCycle Press.
