ORGASMS by Hugh Fox


Um picole de cocó, um colher de Nutella chocolate
casado com avelá, ovinhos de codorniz, cocinando
com queso branco, guarana e pedaços de goiaba,
colheres cheias de Nescafe chocolate embalsimado
com azucar, esquece os olhos, as cavernas pelúcias e as
facas exploradores, os corpos deitados nos camas
celestias…so a lingua fala, trufas, brigadeiros, camifeos,
cajuzwaha, tempo tudo em um orgasmo que não termina


A coconut icecream stick, a spoonful of Nutella chocolate
married to hazelnuts, quail eggs, cooking with white
cheese, guarana and pieces of guava, spoons full of
Nescafe chocolate embalmed with sugar, forget your
eyes, the plush caverns and the exploratory knives, the
bodies stretched out on celestial beds….only the tongue
talks, trufas, brigadeiros, camifeos, cajuwaha, full time
having an orgasm that doesn’t stop.

  1. Fox was born in Chicago in 1932, was immersed in violin, piano, musical composition, opera, ballet, painting, ceramics during his whole childhood, when he was getting his Ph.D. in American Literature from the U. of Illinois in the 1950’s, he met and married Lucia Ungaro de Zevallos from Lima, Peru, and that marriage changed his entire life. She got her degree in Romance Languages and they started going to Peru a couple of times a year, Fox taught (as a Fulbright Scholar) at the Instituto Pedagogico in Caracas for two years, one year in Hermosillo, Mexico, later, after his divorce from Lucia, he taught for two years in Brazil, spent a year as an archaeologist in the Atacama Desert, spent a year studying Latin American Literature at the U. of Buenos Aires….became totally hispanized, and then married a Brazilian M.D. 30 years ago, goes to Brazil a couple of times a year, mostly to the island of Santa Catarina off the southern Brazilian coast…where her family lives. He has 110 books published, the latest THE COLLECTED POETRY OF HUGH FOX (540 pages), published by World Audience in NYC.

  2. I was fortunate to publish Fox’s ME in the Little Red Book series. It’s nice to see that he’s settling into his old age comfortably and reveling, at last, in the delights of the senses…’cause really, that’s all we have. It just takes us for bloody ever to realize it!
