Multipoetry Krakow. Monica Doña

Between August 2014 and December 2015 the KraKow UNESCO City of Literature  progamme organised a “multipoetry” project that involved the other UCCN Cities of Literature, furthering the network’s objectives for international cooperation. The project, titled Krakow Multipoetry, consists of the first few days of each month (with each day being allocated a different city, from the 1st to the 10th) being devoted to enabling the Cities of Literaqture to project poetry, in English and Polish, onto the walls of one of the best-known buildings in the city’s old quarter: the Potocki building on Bracka Street.

Granada joined the project in June 2015, with ten poets participating, from which Krakow chose seven before the project ended in December de 2015: Ioana GruiaÁngeles MoraMónica DoñaJuan Carlos FriebeTrinidad GanErika Martínez and Virgilio Cara.

On 9 August 2015 a poem by Mónica Doña was projected:

 

You ordered at the florist’s
two dozen roses.
As if they were eggs
to nourish a family
that’s off its food, perplexed.
