MANHATTAN: An Archaeology presents Eileen R. Tabios’ latest innovative approach to poetry-making. In this book, she uses a diverse set of “artifacts” to excavate a version of New... More > York City’s historical birthplace. Artifacts include the unexpected and the ineffable to create a city only she can imagine—while they include a pearl necklace, piece of pineapple skin, yoga mat, black sateen, and bullet, the “objects” for perusal also range over moonlight, “withheld forgiveness,” and duende. The result, too, is unexpected and ineffable: Poetry that delights and intrigues. Some receptive readers will wake from the book missing something they hadn’t realized they missed, longing for something they hadn’t realized they desired.< Less

The “hay(na)ku” is a tercet-based poetic form invented by Eileen R. Tabios and named by Filipino-American poet Vince Gotera. The basic tercet presents the first line as one word, the... More > second line as two words, and the third line as three words. The words can be as long or short as desired by the poet. The “1, 2, 3” aspect of the form relates to a Filipino nursery rhyme: isa, dalawa, tatlo, ang tatay mo'y kalbo. The rhyme translates into English as "one two three, your dad is bald.” Advance words: I find the word-based formal constraint of hay(na)ku (as opposed to a syllable or metrical foot based constraint) leads to poems that are in many ways more natural, and that, in particular, the 1-2-3 structure is a pattern that comes up continually in the course of the daily. Poetry lives and breathes in the daily, and hay(na)ku has the ability to capture profound and delightful pieces that might otherwise be missed. —Dan Waber< Less

Fifteen years after its debut in 2003, the hay(na)ku continues to find a home in the writings of poets around the world. This 15th year anniversary anthology presents 128 poets and translators from... More > 13 countries: Australia, Canada, England, Finland, India, Luxembourg, Mexico, New Zealand, Philippines, Poland, Scotland, Thailand, and United States. Poems are presented in eight languages: English, Filipino, Finnish, Hindi, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, and Spanish. The Spanish poems include an all-Spanish section translating poems from the now out-of-print The First Hay(na)ku Anthology—a project that came out of the Poetry and Translation Seminar at the National Autonomous University of Mexico. The hay(na)ku’s international expanse befits its conceptualization by inventor Eileen R. Tabios as a “Filipino (but) diasporic form.”   < Less
