Something for Juan Goytisolo

Friend, I’ll remember you dancing
with shadows, your metal button words,
your argot-tipped tongue. 

…an extract from Hamburg a poem in my collection BONE INK available here

Today, this poem is for Juan Goytisolo.

If you’d like to review Bone Ink get in contact; my publisher has given me a few copies to shoot out into the world. Or if you’re a poet with a book out recently who’d like to do a book swap, I’m happy to trade books – always keen to read something new.




  1. Is that for the Juan Goytisolo who wrote Fiestas? I remember reading that in Spanish Lit at College. Great story, which is probably still as relevant today as it was in Franco’s time.
    What’s your connection Rico?
