poesía eres chulhu [2014-2017]

concrete poetry series based on visually rearranged (yet unaltered) pop song lyrics.

in 2017 the following poems were recorded by australian poet marc jones for the project el tejido continua en lo ilegible:

shoulda (2017): a homage to the performative reading of the same poem, produced by nick cave and read by kylie ann minogue the july 7th, 1996 at royal albert hall in london.

I (2014)
oh but you don’t care (2014)
believer (2014)
before now maybe never (2015): call me maybe reordered chronologically
a sign! a sign! (2014).

listen to marc jones's rendering of shoulda.

the last poem, quenoqueno (2016), is based on juan gabriel's déjame vivir and was performed in paris during nouvelles impressions sur la poésie mexicaine des années 80.
