The Law of Dynamics and Sucking the Stone by Legna Rodríguez Iglesias

Featuring: Legna Rodríguez Iglesias, Serafina Vick, Abigail Parry

This week the podcast features two poems by Cuban poet Legna Rodríguez Iglesias, both from her 2013 collection Sucking The Stone. The first of these, The Law of Dynamics, sees the poet explaining to Galileo why he can't to the Macarena. (Why? Because it is 'a dance for Satyrs and other sex-mad creatures.') while the second poem, one of two in the collection to share the volumes name, Sucking The Stone, references Lapis Lazuli the semi-precious stone that has been prized since antiquity for its intense blue colour.

You can find more poems from Sucking The Stone on the PTC's free online audio archive of Legana's poems.
