When I said Goodbye By Didi Menendez
|When I said Goodbye||Didi Menendez||BlazeVOX [books]|
"Sexy, involved, intense, hilarious, hip, weird, intelligent, witchy wild in a way one thinks of female owls, maybe with embers of fire under their wings, such wide eyesight: This Is A Damn Good Book!"
Dulce Menendez writes like no one is watching, She's a wanderer with apurpose, moving language from darkness to bliss, dazzling like a flamenco dancer. She writes as if there's nothing to lose -- fusing images that inflamed her past -- with a beat of music behind each line. How many places can the mind go at once? We are surprised by her perception, and replenished by her sensuality. Menendez mines a vector of power so that all that' submerged explodes on the line. We travel her poems with the same ceaseless spirit she has. Courage is an expressed rebellion....When implicated by exactly the right words, it is unforgettable. It becomes poetry.
