Listed below are links to weblogs that reference "Cuerpos": Five Spanish Poems [by Kiely Sweatt]:


Beautiful in its intimacy -- the delicacy of an American feminine sensibility in the masculinist culture of Spain. I read somewhere that the most masculinist countries in Europe are Spain and Germany. Te most feminista: France and Italy. Not sure about the UK.

you see a man
clothed, tender, leaning
into the summer of cities
& who was eating some sour cherries
Is it good neighbor you whispered
is it beautiful as sandals
in Sappho and surprising like secrets
It is good,Gongula it is sweetbitter
and I like tasting it
because it is bittersweet
and because it is also sweet.

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
