"Becoming Coztōtōtl is composed of eighteen poems that celebrate the forces that have made claims on us since the beginning of time: our bodies, our land, our families. Throughout these pages, Carolina Hinojosa-Cisneros honors our children, our mothers, and our antepasados with a subtle lyricism that demands our attention.Read these poems. They are timely in their defiance of injustice, timely in their unfeigned compassion."-Octavio Quintanilla, San Antonio Poet Laureate and author of If I Go Missing.
