Arvyn Cerézo’s debut poetry collection delves into the complexities of difficult themes such as death, depression, loss, and suburbia living. Often contemplative and questioning, the collection also explores the intricacies of neo diaspora and how it saves the poet’s life.
With poems written in short narrative verses, Dystopia and Derelict Dreams mostly tackles an important phase of being human—finding oneself after losing the sense of self-identity.
