Poems and Poetics: Four Poems by Heriberto Yépez translated by Nathaniel Tarn (redux)

 

Heriberto Yepez

A SEXY EPIC

“A SEXY EPIC.”

An untoward alliance

of words.

A prosti-code of our time

(an era which is scarcely maternal). 

An age pusillanimous or absurd 

What would Homer have said

had he seen this movie? 

Would he have been anguished by this rape? 

Or would he not even have been restored

by the very existence of Virgil?
