The ACT of VOICE in the POETRY of WORDS
I'm not against the performance of words,
But I can feel the muted voices beyond them
as if they touch my skin and get in
—that is hearing.
Language is a privilege for communication. Today, we are surrounded by words used to call, email, tweet, share. Yet, we all are so hurt and vulnerable for not being heard —as the conception of words are lost in literal and virtual realities — untouched and unheard. One of the biggest problems from this century, which we all confront, is the prevalence of noises over voices. The world needs silence. Not on the contrary to words, but to stretch the time to be able to touch, to perceive "to hear". Words born from silence can seek their conclusion in silence, to make that silence a way into the world of communication through contemplation. My works dwell in those moments of reflection, emphasising the significance of the unheard in a metaphor of language poetry beyond its poverty; somewhere beneath the skin of words and the skin of mine, yours, us, for contemplation.
Lonely in places that even know would exist.
