Description

A collection of love poems, Text Me expresses through language and metaphor the many ways to say “I love you.” Calabrò’s poems often evolve from the experiences of the body: from sensual impressions, “Your cheek on my weary shoulder / the day pales, your lips pale / up, up, one more wing-beat / till we run out of oxygen”;  to image, “In cold blood / the ice contrail of a Phantom jet /stabs the blue. / Like a blade in honey / you plunge your gaze into my heart”; to memory , “We met and I kissed you / already consumed by the need to betray you.” Although rooted in Calabrò's Mediterranean, these poems have a universality which give voice to our common burden of love, sorrow and guilt.
