STAGE ONE before high piled books frustration is palpable. There’s a need to pull back a bit and examine the magic hand of chance. The findings will surely trigger deep concern within the hierarchy.

STAGE TWO in a season of splendorous kiss-and-tell candid masturbation keeps…

rear cover blurbs

Paul Hawkins, author of Claremont Road and Contumacy. Co-editor of Boscombe Revolution.

neiva peels back the dressing that barely covers recent lacerations into the human condition, unwinds the bandages of real time through place, space and memory variants. dough scopes out the pinch and prick of capitalism; the taste of barrio-dissent in the face of euro meltdown and realpolitik bullshit. This is vital dissent.

 

SJ Fowler, author of Red Museum, Fights and The Rottweiler’s guide to the Dog Owner. Poetry editor for 3:AM Magazine. Curator of Enemies project.

The minimisation of structure mushrooms the crown crush of these poetical asides by the singular Portuguese avant gardist bruno neiva. The murderous accuracy that laser guiding systems clearly possess, but are not trained to employ, emanates from this taut, surgical work. It is a satire, a corrosive against double speak & offalous officialdom, with all the intensity of a brilliant visual poet taking to a more lyrical lingual poesis.

 

Tom Jenks, author of Streak Artefacts, Crabtree and On Liberty, Repressed. Editor of ZimZalla.

bruno neiva’s terse, oblique communiques are dispatches from the fringes of meaning. Fractured and fissiparous, they could be messages in a bottle or marginal notes from a nonexistent meeting. At once transparent and gnomic, these poems gather the particles of language all around us and assemble them into temporary structures that could stand for a thousand years. neiva’s work reminds us that the text is never the sum of its parts and that inside every secret room there is another secret room.

PARCELS is also an homage to the artists Marcel Broodthaers, Ana Hatherly and Álvaro Lapa.
