‘Selected Poems’ finally arrived yesterday and I’m already blown away just a few pages in. I hope to get time to write something more detailed soon!
Here’s a poem (not actually from ‘selected works’ but just as good as the work inside)
The memory of my father is wrapped up in
white paper, like sandwiches taken for a day at work.
Just as a magician takes towers and rabbits
out of his hat, he drew love from his small body,
and the rivers of his hands
overflowed with good deeds.
