“Adrian Alarilla’s short works are powerful in its visual poetry and insight into the process of moving – the pain of loss, the anxiety that comes with new experience. With TO MANONG CARLOS, his paean to the legacy of Filipino American poet writer, Carlos Bulosan, he seems now able to resolve the guilt of leaving and embrace his new life in America.”
