Pat Mora's Uncoiling is about a tornado. The poem is an extended personification of the tornado, with the wind shown as a powerful woman doing some unspecified native dance. In part other aspects of the landscape around El Paso are also personified, as when Mrs. Mora tells us:
boulders retreat like crabs
Pat Mora appeals to a highly specific demographic in poetry: this poem invokes a powerful woman who works native magic. Readers who are attracted to such themes will find the poem enjoyable.
Read the words and listen. The poem is about the night.
