Poetry: Lenguaje Resonante | Echoing Language and Amplexus by Tak Erzinger

“Yo hablo, yo hablo así, you hablo así, en mi corozón…

When I began to speak, I parroted

Mariposas instead of butterflies

and they appeared to be tropical

but I realised I was landlocked and

it was winter with dusty snowflakes…”

Tak reads two poems from Tourist, her latest book of poetry. You can purchase a copy of Tourist at Amazon and at Sea Crow Press.
