An excerpt from his poem “Fragment 88” in our Fall 2013 issue:
I will love the orange blossoms
brought here by merchants—
the pepper’s heat—an oil
so strong for such a small black seed
showing passion in size;
cardamom in goat’s milk
boiled with honey,
sweeter than wine:
vines’ plump grapes
whose mild tang
wakes up my tongue. …
For more like this, don’t hesitate to order his book. We’re certain you won’t be disappointed.
