stork necks, and when they gave off
smoke it was as if the storks were opening
Owner of a totally singular voice, Ricardo Tiago Moura builds poems in which the formal attention to the poem’s stain, the space the word occupies on the empty page, is evident. His poetry is never too thematically removed from the parody or political deconstruction of everyday discourse. He is, undoubtedly, the poet of my generation who most interests me.
Ricardo Tiago Moura was born in Coimbra and lives in Denmark. Besides being a writer he is also a collage artist.
