Author Carlos Schröder splits his time between Washington, D.C., and his native Buenos Aires, Argentina. His poems are concerned with the experiences of exile, loss, and the artificial borders we raise between each other, whether emotional, political, spiritual, or physical. Border & Frontier addresses all of these in one short poem.
