How does one read a triptico? One begins with the knowledge at hand. It is read across, from left to right like most traditional verses in our shared cultures. One notices that the meanings from one language fuse together with the other at the crossroads, at the intersections (los intersticios) like crossing an imaginary border that, nonetheless, is very real… it is palpable beyond sight and sound.

But beyond these borderline readings there are at least two, sometimes more, modalities to each of the poems. On one side, either side, defined by the comfort and constancy of the reader’s or listener’s language, another poem appears. Reading from top to bottom, the commonality of a single language comes together. On the other side (the opposing side?), a third and distinct grouping is also generated. Each of these readings is a different poem; each of these poems give meaning and form to the triptico.
