Martin Esposito is an Italian born bilingual conference interpreter and translator. His poetry is usually recorded and published in oral form as a HEARTBEAT, and rarely sees the light in paper form. He delves into the theme of split belonging and sense of loss in both languages through open-ended explorations of the rapport between the human heart and big machine-systems, in a way distantly related to cyberpunk.

Selected Work
 
caught in the last light
I can just make out her steps
through late winter snow
 
fly up from the shore
while a skipping CD track
begins to begin
 
 
 
she paces the shore
the mechanics of her heart
caught up in sun rays
 
in early dawn light
as snow takes on shapes of feet
pride gives in to love
 
 
 
once more she has been
temporarily in love
with afternoon skies
 
earth grows on these boots
though what weighs down the road is
brown rust on my keys
