Nick Carbo is the author of four books of poetry, the latest being Chinese, Japanese, What are These? (Pecan Grove Press, 2009). He has won grants from the National Endowment for the Arts and the New York Foundation for the Arts.
This November, to recognize and honor National Adoption Awareness Month, I've invited adoptee poet Marci Calabretta Cancio-Bello to curate a folio of poems by 10 Asian American adoptees. This page features Nick Carbo's "My Last Sestina." I invite you to take a moment to read her moving introduction to the folio here, as well as the other nine poems in this collection.
