Ariel Francisco

An unofficial sequel to A Sinking Ship is Still a Ship (Burrow, 2020), Francisco returns to the topics of Miami and climate change, exploring the ruined present––the closing of Churchill’s; a hulking Margaritaville on Hollywood Beach––and future ruins with his signature wry but humorous style. This edition includes parallel Spanish translations by Francisco Henriquez.

“Part satirist, part ecopoet, part elegist, but every bit a luminous poet, Ariel Francisco brilliantly voices the complex intersections of the physical, emotional, and natural landscapes that define our sense of place and belonging, as well as our feelings of alienation and ennui.”
—RICHARD BLANCO author of How to Love a Country

“How could I not be a fan of Ariel Francisco’s bittersweet Floribeño flow? ¿Así se escribe “Caribe”? A.F. is Floribeño a.f.!”
–URAYOÁN NOEL author of Transversal
