The Call to
Destroy Nixon

by Pablo Neruda

translated by Chad Sweeney

[F]rom time to time I must be
a bard of public service,
which is to say that
I must give the lumberjack,
the shepherd, the bricklayer, the farm-hand,
the gasfitter or any poor foot soldier,
the power to break free with a clean punch
or to release the madness
like flames from his ears.

Call me Noah

White Holes is a sequence of poems that attempts to give speech, broken as it might be, to the grief that is felt in the wake of a mother's death. Here, in Hart's left-behind world, what isn't said — what can't be said — carries as much weight as what is said. There is a delicate balance in these poems between language and articulation and the fractured space, both psychic and visible, that must be entered and accounted for in the aftermath of the mother's absence. It was Beckett who made the claim: “you must go on, I can't go on, I'll go on.” No other book of poems, no other poet, in recent years, seizes hold of this declaration and makes from it an artifact that is both holy and wholly his own.
