Translations


I just read the poem "Language" by Tomaz Salamun (Translated from Slovenian by Joshua Beckman and the author) and the last two lines keep whirring through my thoughts. "I want you to drop to your knees in love, even if you knock your head a bit. I want you to pass out." I mean, wow oh wow. May you knock your head in love!

  2. I want that sort of passion in everything.

    In love, sure, but that's obviously not my strong suit these days.

    But in art? In poetics? In applying that sort of philosophy to your afternoon walk down the street?

    Yes. Yes. Yes.
