“It is well known how history is rewritten by the winners who often ignore or keep out “other” stories. In many of the poems translated here, taken from Matt Sedillo's two collections, Mowing Leaves of Grass and City on the Second Floor, the author rereads and retraces precisely those "other" stories. He does this in the light of precise data and references, which make his excavation work even richer and more precious. Without too many preambles, he mentions names, places, dates of massacres, wild gentrification, injustices and inequalities almost always consumed in the shadow of declared policies of inclusion carried out through various legislative instruments or racist and homophobic attitudes of the American political, economic and social system towards the so-called minorities".
