From a free verse that is formulated from the internal beat of ray writing, my poetic work is regenerated from the themes they capture at the time of evocation. Just as in La dona talaiòtica there was a need to rework a process of maturation of the lyric self rooted around her, in La mamella de Déu the relationship with spirituality is raised from the naive, premature, but doubtful point of view. From there, the lyric self is corrupted by the evolution of this spirituality and, among others, the material question is impregnated. Thus, this first word with God, with the mother, is disturbed by the consciousness of the body, of desire. I am very interested in finding the inheritance of these rays from the authors to whom I am in this line: Anne Sexton, Alda Merini, Olga Orozco, among others. However, there is a common fall in these paths and it is uncertainty as a source of spirit.
Joan writes from a young age to understand and discover what happens to him inside and outside. The experience, the senses and imagery become a constant in his poetry, which is articulated through the combination of non-form, song and play. Thus, Joan writes to explore areas that evoke him, such as the widespread rejection of change, the normativity that oppresses individual expression and the interstices of personal relationships. Recently, he has also investigated the ideation of suicide from a personal perspective and with a testimonial intention.

Her practice is typical of writing confessional, sincere, spontaneous, self-critical poetry with elements of self-fiction, and an imperfect technique that sometimes leads to poetic prose. Disorientation, embodiment, uncertainty, insecurity, or goings and comings, obsessions, contradictions and irresolute polarities are the essential vehicle of this sometimes thoughtful and mocking poetry of sarcasm.
