Praise for The New York City Subway Poems 

Carlos Aguasaco’s poetry collection renders a voice to the next immigrants’ wave, the latest nomads of our world, those that daily ride the subway and continuously reshape the metropolis. In this bilingual collection the poet emphasizes the migrant experience and daringly reveal a lyrical itinerary through the City of New York.

Transborder Poet (Mexico/US) and Prof. Ohio Wesleyan University


The poetic language of Carlos Aguasaco is familiar, fluid, and thoughtful. His work is founded on several sensible, personal myths: some declared and others hidden with great discretion and skill. His poetry reveals him as a wounded, yet defiant poet, master of a layered tongue, far from conventional or traditional styles.

- Ahmad Alshahawy

Egyptian poet and Editor of Nesf El Donya (Al Ahram)
