Los creadores y sus poéticas en el siglo XXI

  La idea básica es poder conversar sobre las poética del siglo XXI. Preguntarnos cómo conciben sus poeticas nuestros creadores (poetas, narradores, autores teatrales, guionista o creadores de plataformas virtuales). Tú puedes iniciar la conversa a partir de tu práctica como creador.

Toma en cuenta:

0. Exprésate libremente. No exageres. Sé poético, sí. No te enriedes, se claro. Piensa entre 50 a 100 palabras por cada intervención.

1. Escribe a partir de tu experiencia como creador.

2. Debe tener tres opiniones. En la primera,  cada uno manifiesta sus planteamientos.

3. La segunda y tercera  comenta lo que tus compañeros opinan. 

4. Debes elegir hablar de la opinión de solamente de dos de tus colegas.

6. Cuando opines ten en cuenta lo que ya se ha dicho, no repitas, avanza y comenta.

7. Expresa tu coincidencia, acercamiento y discrepancias. 

8. Al final de tu intervención te invito a que revises propongas una frase de sintesis.

futile body 
I could say skin hands feet flesh flesh 
sex body history 

you enjoy the other in two 
absent revolted unexplored dry 
valley smell of desire 

incessant impulse or I take you 
love me at the precise edge of your flank 
inside or outside 

feminine figure ding men celebration 
delight sacred skin 
or profane existence 

without you 



The 36th Day 

I am not from this tribe 

my paisanos, those of my ancestors, 
they knew about this minuscule fragment 
that launches us to the miracles 
of fresh aromo and warming waters 

from our women, our 
grandparents, liberated the sorcerer 
of the body in battle 
that enjoys this little moment without limits 

the paisanos of my ancestors 
forgot theyouthat is lost when 
the lizard of desire invades me 

its pleasure doesn’t seem to be 
part of this world 

I don’t have anything 
or anyone 
to bite 



Disco 13 

If I write thirteen teenagersLife is worthless, 
they killed us or if I put 
the police intervened or if I note that the women 
didn’t have masks or if I describe how I helped them 
in the road or I left them on the dance floor 
perhaps no one remembers anything. 

It is worthless. I have no strengthhelp me papi. 
He’s dead. 
Make room, sit down, fear that lives 
in the arrest or the fine, the guilt with no mask. 

Life. They come out one by one, they take out 
injured bodies, they go back and take out corpses 
they’ve closed the doors. 
Everyone has died 
suffocated. I am still drinkingCarajo, 
it is worthlessGet me out! 

 I reanimate you but you no longer respondthe tono is cool. 
Life, carajo, is worthless, tears like bullets 
pisco beer damp cigar wet 
all the bodies are wet 

Life is worthless. 
Life life life. 




I am outside the ruined tumult 
you don’t feel the maro that circles the border 
I review the frail blink of my vaporous life. 

I move the soft finger. You lay me 
you lay here 

you said I am yours I said I am yours 
and we never knew 
of the silent island of the noon 
that invaded our landscape 

it waits at the borders 
at the limits of disdain 
and it still thinks of you 

it walks 
without rumba 
it stops
