dc.description.abstract The work shown here is a compilation of revised poems and new poems written during my ten-day residencies and throughout the semesters taken to complete the MFA in Creative Writing at the University of Florida in Tampa, FL. It is divided into three parts to please the title, “Trilogy of Absence,” because it depicts three long periods of time in the poet’s life. The earlier part incorporates a chronology of silhouettes from my very early life in Cuba and my younger years in New Jersey. The second part is a discovery of life around me during my teenage years through my thirties. The third part, Revelations, is more analytical in nature; here, the poet is observing pieces of his life instead of the whole picture. This section shows a constant interaction with the world around me as well as my observations at a more mature age. It is interesting that there is a progression from fewer poems in my earlier years to many more in the later sections. It is simply that there were much better poems later than when I started writing in English at eleven years of age. Up to that age, I was already writing poetry, however, the poems were written in Spanish as it my native tongue. en_US
