Eduardo's excerpted statement:
"Spanish and poems come to me in pieces: the flash of a phrase, a jumble
of syntaxes and dictions, verbal hurdles, the pursuit of epiphany and meaning.
But something magical happens when I'm writing a poem. I'm not singing
in English or Spanish---I'm singing in my mother tongue"

Carl's excerpted statement:
"I think of syntax as being related to the erotic. In syntax,
embedded clauses and subordination are the equivalent of
sexual stalling. It's like foreplay."
