NOT EVEN DOGS is not only Ernesto Priego's debut poetry collection but also the first single-author hay(na)ku poetry book.
The hay(na)ku is a "diasporic" poetic form created by Eileen... More > Tabios. Of Priego's book, respected poet Eric Gamalinda says:
"The weirdly christened, pun-intended brainchild of that Thomas Alva Edison of contemporary poetry, Eileen Tabios, the jainakú (aka hay(na)ku) becomes truly global in NOT EVEN DOGS, and Ernesto Priego may rightfully claim to have elevated it to an art form."
Born in Mexico City, Ernesto Priego is an essayist, teacher and translator. He is interested in everything having to do with poetry, graphic narratives and pop music.< Less
