You must have lived to write poetry?
RC: You must live in the existential sense, with all senses alert, to write. To write poetry, especially.
What sets or approaches in poetic terms these two books, "Night Wanderer" and "I'm mercury, I have water."
RC: Both books contain both a kind of life cycle of the elements. "Night Wanderer" is a book of water and fire. Affected by the initiatory trance night of eternal pursuit of love, passion, body ecstatic. It is a river of light and lava. Of lightness. Wanderings of the ridentes shortcuts in the celebration of life. "I am Mercury, I Have Water", the other side, the land and the air languishing on the corner of dying afternoons. The day of the weight that blind, mercury contaminating ancient waters. The western side.
There are poems that define you as a poet or not?
RC: I think that some published poems, and other unpublished, may define
myself as a poet, in the sense that denote delivery to the verb, the poetic transfiguration, to some literary quality. But it is up to those who read feel the author through the text and thus the "sort".
When you write poems you think the cadence of the words to be uttered.
RC: I am very slow to write, in the sense of the final text. This is the excess of the clearance work, the tracery that can mask the essential. Of course the poem feeds on musicality, rhythm, the naked syllables dressing festivity. It does not happen, because I think the cadence of the words while writing, there is a spiritual calling that brings the hand of the river should run singing, dancing across the page.
There are times when you feel that women poets are less recognized in the literary world rather than men?
RC: Oh, sure, women, despite a struggle and much affirmation, continue on a lower plane, from the point of view of its social acceptance, in any context. See what is still happening in the working environment in these countries of the 1st world, as it relates to salary differences, maternity support, equal working conditions. But while hurts saying so, I also think that often, certain types of discrimination has to do with the attitude of the woman herself. Unfortunately, in a time emancipations, there are aspects in which the woman regressed, becoming almost exclusively a consumer product, means for easy marketing revolutions.
