The power of poetry

bidussaBy David Bidussa*

In memory of Paul Celan, who is not wrong to re-read every now and then.
“Black milk of daybreak we drink it at sundown
we drink it at noon in the morning we drink it at night
we drink it and drink it
we dig a grave in the breezes there one lies unconfined”
The power of poetry: the genocide in little more than a tweet and nothing else.

*David Bidussa is a historian of social ideas.
