Home Remedies is a salve made from organic rhythms and forms mixed with locally sourced images, characters, and voices from Hawaiʻi and the Philippines. As if by poetic magic, Amalia Bueno transforms coconut oil, paper seeds, and 500 lumpia into healing prayers. Apply these poems generously, dear reader, because they have the power to soothe our displaced, migratory, aging, forgotten, and incarcerated bodies.
