„all poems rhymes are just toys/ of metal wood sand clay textile / paper plush caoutchouc plastic ash/ lived in this whole history — and will further” Peter Šulej

Poetry, just like music, would not exist without silence. If we want to draw new maps of poetry, we need to discover a still unknown territory and enter the world of prospectors and explorers. We don’t have to fear leaving empty-handed or entering a lion’s cave. Here stands only one rule: who seeks, shall find. You don’t need to be quiet or be afraid of a dead silence. Clear and strong voices of those, both young and well-known will be heard. We will learn to listen them carefully. Even in the silence.
