I’m reading a book of poetry every month this year! This month’s book was Pablo Neruda’s Twenty Love Poems and a Song of Despair. Next month, join me in reading Black Aperture by Matt Rasmussen. Click here for a list of all the books in my Poetry 2015 Campaign.
This book was delicious and sexy.
“But my words become stained with your love / You occupy everything, you occupy everything.”
“becalmed in the throat of the fortunate isles / that are white and sweet as cool hips.”
“You are like my soul, a butterfly of dream, / and you are like the word Melancholy.”
Are you convinced? I am.
Be sure to track down Black Aperture for April!
