Cinta para Medir (Measuring Tape)
Alan Sobrino

In this poem, Alan Sobrino proposes to measure reality with verses, not inches or centimeters.

"It's a human error to forget that poetry
makes reality"

"es un error humano olvidar que la poesía
hace la realidad"

A book can also exist as an autonomous and self-sufficient form, including perhaps a text that emphasizes that form, a text that is an organic part of that form: here begins the new art of making books. (Ulises Carrion)
