Poetry. Translated by Camilo Roldán. GOD IS A BITCH TOO proposes a raw look at the contemporary. Its language is accelerated, acidic, unstructured. In this chapbook, god is needy, Latin American, and an overweight woman. No one asks god to dance. Someone speaks, someone tries: "One is the measure of their body."
