The new poems by Thomas Kunst are far removed from the subjects of wanderlust and yearning for love. On the surface regional, they are actually international through and through: Arab riders muster in a local DIY store. The 732 AD Battle of Tours and Poitiers rages between car ports and garden furniture cushions.
"His volume is nothing short of phenomenal. 'Kolonien und Manschettenknöpfe' is ripe for an award." (Jonis Hartmann, Fixpoetry)
