Today's book of poems: Trivia Thief, Selected Poems 1969-2009, Alberto Nessi, Guernica, 2010. Poems built out of memory that are instantly recognizable. A very common touch. Translated works often lack the romantically intangible glue necessary for poetry - these poems overcome that obstacle with their deceptively simple language as they explore universal themes from a personal level. I like these poems a lot.
