Mookie Katigbak-Lacuesta

(Philippines, 1980)

In poems by Mookie Katigbak-Lacuesta, sentences both reinforce each other and put each other up for discussion, in much the same way that characters in her poems conceal and disclose their presence from/to the other, a lover. Katigbak's language follows the uncertainties of human relationships, with lines that are candid, strong and outspoken, showing once more that the appearance of reality constantly changes with all the words devoted to it. This quality, already apparent in her debut The Proxy Eros (2008), deepens in her second collection Burning Houses (2013).
