Nothing but the Poem with Samuel Tongue: The Poetry of Andrés N Ordorica

Andrés N Ordorica’s debut collection, At Least This I Know, heralds the arrival of a fully-formed poetic talent onto the Scottish literary scene. Constructed around his identity as a queer, Latinx immigrant to Scotland, Ordorica’s poems offer a compelling picture of a young person’s search for community. Today, poet Samuel Tongue explores the personal and political landscapes that Ordorica creates in his poetry.
