Poetry. "Ivan Arguelles's work has always affected me like fire pouring from some unmapped stellar helix. The existences he engenders seem to open up death, to pave the way for an unlocking, for an ascent, so that our minds can live in fearless play. Arguelles lives in Mayan ritual craters, speaking in green lunation cycles, growing suns and dates from the power of chimes. It is a world replete with ruses, temperatures, species, where the force of language takes over without judgement." Will Alexander"
