Poème chocolat

May 14, 2009

Just as we were polishing off the last of the jaffa cakes, Lilias drew our attention to Pierre Martory (1920 – 1998) and his resonant ‘Poème chocolat’, part of his dual-language edition of The Landscapist (Carcanet, 2008). The last few lines seemed particularly worthy of mention:

But seriously
I was trying to find at the base of my cerebral convulsions
The word poem
And I always found chocolate.

Hear hear.
