From the back cover: "Black Mesa Poems is rooted in the AMerican Southwest, the setting of Jimmy Santiago Baca's highly acclaimed long narrative poem 'Martin and Meditations on the South Valley.'' The individual poems of Black Mesa are embedded both in the family and in the continuity of life of the barrio, detailing births and deaths, neighbors and seasons, injustices and victories. Loosely interconnected, the poems trace a visionary biography of place."
