Reveling in the mystic wonders that can emerge even from "the palm of a corporate boss," the poems of Paco Márquez "splash the sky wide," exposing the magic in the quotidian -- the "unnoticed silhouettes / imprinted in the grass." In the tender violence of these portraits, "that which spoke the rose into being" also hums through daily life, holding a man's hand, looking him in the eye, and saying, "the kitchen window is open." To open this book is to see the world illuminated.
