Haikouthkia mexicana: THE RETURN OF FORTINO SAMANO!
FROM THE ORIGINAL LINER NOTES:
A man whose name is synonymous with the art of the haiku, Mr. Samano returns to the stage with six more original Cypriot haikouthkia. Will he ever run out?
It seems unlikely. We've been told that Mr. Samano has recently installed a cherry blossom on his back porch, which overlooks an empty field. The cherry blossom, he says, "puts him in closer touch with his spiritual homelands of Mexico and Japan, while the abandoned field growing high with mosquitos, snakes and crumbling bricks is pure Cyprus."
With much pleasure, therefore, we welcome this pilgrim of poetry/off-road motorcycler to celebrate heat, dust and the various beauties of Cyprus.
