“But there is no oblivion, no dream: raw flesh.
Kisses tie mouths in a tangle of new veins and those who are hurt will hurt without rest…”
— Federico García Lorca, from “Sleepless City (Brooklyn Bridge Nocturne),” Poet in New York . Translation by Greg Simon and Steven F. White. Published June 24th 1998 by Farrar, Straus and Giroux (first published 1940)
