In Jon Pineda’s debut assortment Birthmark, loss takes the form of a scar, reminiscence the form of a youth, and identification the form of a birthmark on a lover’s thigh. Like water taking the shape of its box, Pineda’s poems swell to fill the strains of his studies. opposed to the backdrop of Tidewater, Virginia’s crabs and cicadas, Pineda invokes his mestizo—the Tagalog note for being part Filipino—childhood, weaving laments for a tenuous paternal dating and the lack of a sibling. Channeling those fragmented stories right into a new discovery of self, Birthmark reclaims an identification, tender but unrelenting, with plaintive tones marked both through discomfort, mirrored image, and redemption.
