Borders

In Borders, Mora explores the political, cultural, social, and emotional borders that divide people, forming their individual identities. "We begin one of Mora's poems as if embarking on an exploration of an unknown country. When we finish, we have learned so much about its topology we feel we can claim the land as ours. These are arduous expeditions, though, for both writer and reader. You don't plant your flag without earning the right" — El Paso Times
