for Roberto Bolano, poet of "the other 9/11 '---Chile 9/11 1973

What is now called perversely "the other 9/11"--
brought into being by the Americans in Chile and installed in the person and regime of Pinochet--
permeates the work of Roberto Bolano . . .

looking into these abysses--
they are looking back--
today with Americans no longer
hiding behind Pinochet--
but out in public--
full force 24/7--
running the show--

The "exiled writings" of Bolano begin to find homes among more and more exiles, of the interior as well as the exterior . . .
