LIP WOLF • Laura Solorzano

Paperback / 120 pages
Action Books / 2007


Translated from the Spanish by Jen Hofer. "A beast of lips--wolf, lion, you name it--voracious, gluttonous of the fleshiness of words...These poems provide us with stunning soundings of that which resists remaining still in the form of images"--Monica de la Torre. "wold speaks for the wound, the wound is a mouth. the mouth a memory--wolf has lips of the future. the page is its steppe--wolf of bifid tongue that enlivens two languages--world in two voices: it stalks in one, sniggs, tracks in the other. once again licks the lip of the wound--wolf among ruins of words, between landslides and remnants of words--nomad, vandal wolf--indefatigable predator wolf--wolf of future lip: laura and jen invent it as they name it" --Jorge Esquinea.
