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.
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?
It is! No connection except a (possibly) over the top appreciation of his work. Agreed, still very relevant, on many levels.
