Fascicle is now officially out. Tell me what you think of these poems from Lola Velasco and Amalia Iglesias, translated by me.

Beautiful. "Of butterflies / of metal"; "fistful of fish."

My initial impression is that the poems don't sound anything like you. I mean that as a compliment; your hand is virtually invisible and the poems read like beautiful originals in English.

So when are you going to blog about Roberto Juarroz?

I do take that as a compliment. If Lola and Amalia sounded like me we would all be in trouble. Thanks. And thanks to you too, Laura. Juarroz will have to wait until I have something non-banal to say about him.

They're gorgeous poems, Jonathan, and I am glad that you have given me the opportunity to read them.
