Lance Henson

Entities / Entità

This new volume of poems by Lance Henson is bilingual, as an essential trace of saying necessarily in many languages – southern cheyenne/tsistsistas, english (which for Lance is the enemy’s language), italian. Entities/Entities manifests a word-intensity which becomes more and more powerful and rarefied. It evokes fragments of light, like a subtle mist of the Spirit embodied in the tsistsistas language, and in a river of many other languages, minor, with their voices coming from the limit, the border, the rim, the margin, from the edge of the world. For this reason, these voices know how to speak directly into the heart of things, awakening us from the mechanical torpor of the dominator paradigm, with its hypertechnology, born to robotise us and silence the voices of poets who, awakening us, always carry truth and beauty.
