Craig Santos Perez: from unincorporated territory [lukao].

Craig Santos Perez from unincorporated territory [lukao] Omnidawn

The latest installment by native Chamorro poet Craig Santos Perez, [lukao] dons many genres. From shape poems and snatches of interviews to historical "introductions" and periodic "poemaps" that visually trace the paths of US military bases and the leak of toxic chemicals, Perez's staunchly indigenous and decolonized verse personalizes and exposes legacies of exploitation on his home island of Guam and in the western Pacific (see WLT, May 2017, 68).
