In This City, Claudia Castro Luna, Seattle's first Civic Poet, presents a precise and eloquent study of people and things that often remain unexamined and brushed aside in the urban core. She explores how everyday language fuels both spaces of alienation and belonging and writes about the way memory anchors us to place, how it provides each of us with an individual road map to the city we inhabit. Castro Luna's poems invite the reader to consider his/her personal implication in the status quo and to envision possibilities for change to engender saner, safer, more welcoming spaces for everyone.

Invitation was good, interesting, with various places. Rest of poems, uninteresting, dull, I didn't finish the short book. Try again, Claudia Maria, I wish the rest kept up the Invitation pace.
