Poetry at the Externado

Fecha: 10 of may

Hora: 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

On Wednesday, May 10, 2017, at the Library, the Cultural Decanatura will host a reading of poems by Colombian writer Henry Alexander Gomez.

Special guests at this encounter are poets Ramón Cote Baraibar and Henry Alexander Gómez, author of the Book for Pennies Collection No.  133, “El humo de la noche rodea mi casa.”

The poets will chat on the book featured in this “Wednesday Poetry” event.  Also, attendees can join in the out-loud poetry reading with their complimentary copy.  We share the following poem:

Hay soles que caen

Un ángel juguetea en el ramaje del árbol.
Es tan grande el abismo,
y tan silencioso el techo del mundo,
que nos abraza la pesadumbre,
y bebemos aguardiente,
y lloramos,
porque no entendemos
cómo Dios juega con sus dedos de piedra
entre las hojas del álamo.
