And What If It Is All About Love

1 de marzo de 2018

Robin Myers is a young poet and translator from New York, currently living in Mexico City. For her, writing a poem is like an itch that comes "sometimes like a line, sometimes an image, sometimes just a nebulous question or concern or juxtaposition". If we can learn something from Myers' work, it's the fact that poetry can help us understand life itself. In the poem "[And When]", we are confronted with the hardest question there is: what the hell is it all about?





[AND WHEN]


And when

in a dream I asked


someone wiser than myself

what the hell it was all


about, she said

love, and I said Oh


please, but it all

falls away,


we are made of water,

we live in an oil


spill, we kiss

the world through a handkerchief,


we invented

rubber bullets,


there must

be something


else. And I saw

that she was not


going to answer me

again.
