"Do not be afraid. I've been sleeping peacefully for so long and suddenly I hear you here discussing my work, accusing me of a lot of things […] I heard people there saying that I had to go to the Indians, listen for myself the taurepang myths. And that if I had done that, I would have written another story.”
Makunaimã: Myth through Time is a revolutionary book, which brings to light voices and visions from the other side — the indigenous one —, which for ninety years was totally invisible, being repeatedly disrespected in its existence and in its sacredness.
— Cristino Wapishana, in the preface

Tongue Ember Meat Flower

Poetry book by Iara Renno published by Editora Patuá.

by Luiz Chagas

When it comes to erotic poetry, we are assailed by the fear that we will be subjected to words like turgid, fellatio, lewd, coitus, bloated and other precious things (?) that neither time nor the internet have managed to erase. It's really good when we get the impression that the author threw the speech away and published between the lines. He dove into emptiness. No safety net.

Iara Rennó one day, with a lot of sand still on top of the hourglass, invited me to have a beer. I gently explained that I "didn't drink with children". Her reaction was so dignified and sassy that I can't remember the words, but I immediately began to see her as a friend. I literally followed her birth on a stage. I watched, with great pleasure, his adventures as a band, as a band, his first solo flights as an instrumentalist, singer, songwriter, performer. I gave up the kitchen at home for his cooking experiments. I laughed a lot at your tirades and I always welcomed your boldness in life. I never had any doubts about your intelligence.

So I immersed myself in Lingua Brasa Carne Flor, his little book of erotic poems, without any major fears. Knew its origin. Your pedigree. And I wasn't disappointed with the “tacit agreement of the skins” proposed by Iara. I crossed without bothering the “Trident of Saturn”, the “cracks and vulva”, the conjugations of the verb “sip”, certain that I had precious between the lines in front of me.

Liked it. And I sign under “professionals” such as Xico Sá, who prefaced the adventure, and Kiko Dinucci, who accentuated the daring designing the cover.
