"RENOVATIO" is the 3rd collection of Bonafide Rojas & the 2nd publication from Grand Concourse Press. This collection of poems deal with the beauty of reinvention in life & in art, coming of age, dealing with death, fatherhood, the impermanence of our mortality, the realization of interconnectivity & the quiet beauty of solitude.
"It's difficult to explain what Rojas has done in RENOVATIO. Like pulling a rabbit from a hat, it seems impossible to yank words from the stronghold of self like he has. But unlike pulling a rabbit from a hat, this is not an illusion. This is not a trick. Rojas should not feel the need to wait for any applause before he is allowed to be proud of what he's accomplished here."
