Desaprendizajes by J. M. Caballero Bonald

By J. M. Caballero Bonald

Desaprendizajes es un poemario que interroga al lector con implacable recurrencia y otorga a su autor una personalidad poética, consistente y singular, inconfundible. El acento paródico, l. a. subordinación sarcástica, l. a. crítica de l. a. cultura y de la sociedad, una ironía perceptible inclusoen los angeles sintaxis, potencian los angeles capacidad expresiva de una poesía que disecciona paisajes y figuras de los angeles actualidad civil, pretendiendo de ese modo desaprender lo consabido para interpretar los angeles realidad con un nuevo lenguaje o para corregir —como afirma el propio poeta— las erratas de la historia.

The People Look Like Flowers At Last

The gasoline line is leaking, the chook is long past from the

cage, the skyline is dotted with vultures;

Benny eventually received off the stuff and Betty now has a job

as a waitress; and

the chimney sweep used to be fairly gentle as he

giggled up via the

soot.

I walked miles during the urban and recognized

not anything as a huge claw ate at my

abdominal whereas the interior of my head felt

ethereal as though i used to be approximately to go

mad.

it's no longer a lot that not anything means

whatever yet extra that it retains meaning

nothing,

there's no unlock, simply experts and self-

appointed gods and hucksters.

the extra humans say, the fewer there's to say.

even the easiest books are dry sawdust.

—from "fingernails; nostrils; shoelaces"

Sample text

And I got used to overcoming my disgust, because appetite is flexible, and hunger is stronger than appetite. But I never did get used to the absence of my morning coffee and having to take washed-out tea instead. Was that why I never adapted to prison life? " "I don't know many women who are obsessed with coffee in the morning," I answered. " That was not what grieved me, though. One morning a fellow prisoner managed to bring me a cup of coffee. I fell upon it with lust but gave myself time to contemplate it, which only moved another prisoner to cast longing glances in the direction of the cup.

Swelling and breaking, they're thirsty and ready to swallow two spoonfuls of coarse sugar, which no sooner penetrates than the bubbles calm down to a quiet hiss, only to sizzle again in a cry for a substance that is none other than the coffee itself-a flashy rooster of aroma and Eastern masculinity.

I open the door several times, but find no newspaper. Why am I looking for the paper when buildings are falling in all directions? " In this ironic exchange of roles, the text becomes the world, and the world, the text. The page is here equated with the landscape and becomes the mimetic space where negation is negated and forgetfulness is to be forgotten by means of writing. Thus the print medium also acts as a metaphor, the printed page as an icon of the action, as if the exploding shell burst into fragments of discourse on the page, just as the actual shell reconfigures the city's landscape.
