50 years at the cutting edge of poetry publishing

“A meeting point for poets of all latitudes”
— Víctor Rodríguez Núñez

Rose Ausländer, from Mother Tongue: Selected Poems

Mills Made of Wind

Our daily bread
comes at great cost

Mills made of wind
grind the grains of sand

Famine feeds
on the edge of a crust

Give your neighbour the love
you have never had

What is it you are seeking
in the fleeting water
