Paul Lobo Portugés

Paper Song is beautiful. I particularly enjoyed his poems on Mexico and Central America

Lawrence Ferlinghetti

Paul Lobo Portugés's petry sheds light on the myopic consciousness of a dark American night.

Allen Ginsberg

. . . the mingling of history with invention, out of which myth can be born, is the essence of Paul Lobo Portugés's poetry.

Peter Whigham

Portugés's poems are where the strength of future discoveries with language must come from in order for the continuity of poetry to be maintained in relation to the maddening and terrified middle class world which has taken refuge in the switches of television sets in order to fill the lives ghosted by capitalism. They are worth reading many many times, and that is not saying a little in this day of one liners and walk-ons.

Jack Hirschman

Portugés's poems like their composer, begin ticking — sometimes loudly — in the interior regions of your sensitivities working toward a resonance that will affect you when you least suspect, shaking you by the metaphoric shoulders of your own awareness.

Shelly Lowenkopf

Paul Lobo Portugés's volume of poems is alternately moving and profound, whimsical and provocative — a veritable moveable feast. . .

Maurya Simon

Mr. Portugés's poems are rich and various . . . plaintive in their directness and rocky physicality — humorous, sad, believable.

Kathryn Van Spanckeren

These poems resonate far beyond their reading, and their images, emotions and ideas will visit you long after you put this book down.
