"'The Galleons' is part of a long sequence that's about, among many things, the centuries-long colonial structure that sustained Spanish control over Latin and South America, the Caribbean, and the Philippines. Doing a lot of reading about the Spanish galleons and their trade routes, I began to obsessively see the aftermaths of that history everywhere—in my own story as an immigrant from the Philippines, in the coffee and other goods I consumed, even in the O'Hara poems I was reading, and in the golden summertime mornings in New York when the nannies and their strollers are out and about." —Rick Barot
