Interiors

In honor of the Argentine holiday, National Flag Day, we present this work by one of the country’s most representative poets.

Juana Bignozzi
Argentine
1937 – 2015

 

lost the first sense of solidarity
lost horizontal solidarity
neighbor friend corner grocer
in private no one recounts his life story these days
where now are those Renaissance kitchens
the houses of the Carpathians
there will be no museum for our interiors
like a fundamentalist veil some women have salvaged
a universe conquered by my grandmothers
children flora men in permanent distraction or
literary fantasies
while grand women
water patio plants
