Praise and Poems
Twenty-seven years after the fall of the dictatorship in Argentina (1976-1983), Néstor Ponce defies space and time to return to the tragic moment in history, using his pen in the service of memory. – Orianne Guy
… Ponce’s poetry shows the tension in appearance/disappearance through illustrative sequences that lead to moments of discovery, occlusion, secrecy, and emptiness, to masks and blackwater . . . – Mirian Pino
Club Atlético, 1980, May
Razor / of the calendar
suspended on its edge
I wander on the crest of the wave
was there once
a city a street or little boat?
dog wolf or lily?
inside the hood
breathes a scream
