Crevices

ByGILBERT LUIS R. CENTINA III

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Recovecos/Crevices is the final work of notable Catholic poet Gilbert Luis R. Centina III, an Augustinian religious missionary who died from Covid-19 in León, Spain in May 2020. In his preface to this book, completed barely two weeks prior to his death, he sensed the danger surrounding him at his friary at the height of the pandemic. It turned out to be a prescient, if ironic, foreboding of his own mortality. He wrote : “The new coronavirus has rewritten the rules of daily life, and even our most sophisticated technologies seem powerless to stop it as we descend into a dystopian world where no one is sure how all this will end,” adding, “this collection of poetry is my gift to those who survived the pandemic and my tribute to those who fought well and perished.”
