while they sleep (under the bed is another country)

while they sleep (under the bed is another country) refuses to sweep up the shards of Hurricane María?s aftermath. Written in dialogic fragments and intersped with prose poems reflecting on the lasting impact of colonial trauma, it is arranged around the two different discourses.
