Poetry Talk: Luis Felipe Fabre - Mariachi of the Apocalypse
Luis Felipe Fabre
Luis Felipe Fabre MEX writer, in conversation with Ricardo Domeneck BRA/GER writer, about his life and work.
Luis Felipe Fabre (born in Mexico City in 1974) is a pyrotechnician of language and form, whose poetic tools include both the classical eight-syllable tetrameter and the onomatopoeia of comics and cartoons. Fabre’s work is an exercise in political zoology, with velvet tarantulas crawling through the lines of his poems and foxes with bat-wings showing their PRI-ist claws. UFOs spin around, the moon is a shattered plate and edible waitresses show their breasts.
