E.A.”Tony” Mares

From the poem, “Antimatter (Why there is no love)”:

“…That one, the shy one
who looks like a glove
turned inside out,
keep an eye on him.
Make sure he doesn’t loiter
or sleep under the bridge.
If he gets too close,
you could explode…”



Born and raised in Albuquerque, travelled extensively and lived around the country. I’ve published three chapbooks and five books of poetry, translations, and a play. My work has appeared in numerous local, national, and international magazines, reviews, journals and anthologies. Selected works: “The Unicorn Poem & Flowers and Songs of Sorrow,” Albuquerque: West End Press, 1992; “With the Eyes of a Raptor,” San Antonio: Wings Press, 2004; (translator, poems of Angel González) “Casi Toda La Música/ Almost All the Music,” San Antonio, Wings Press, 2007; “Astonishing Light: Conversations I Never Had With Patrociño Barela,” Albuquerque: University of New Mexico Press, forthcoming, fall 2010.
