Loving this week: Look Back, Look Ahead: the seclected Poems of Srecko Kosovel. "O, save me, I am a poet / O, save me, I am a banker!" p. 161 But fun reading it through. Modernism comes on like a freight train and gone are the poems to "the simple words / of our Karst people." p. 39 Might also have the best blurb ever written. It is by Tomaz Salamun.
