Unisex Baseball Tee: Federico García Lorca #29
No one sleeps.
Lunar creatures sniff and circle the
Live iguanas will come to bite the men who
and the brokenhearted fugitive will meet on
the tender protest of the stars.
In June of 1929, the Spanish poet Federico García Lorca moved for a time to New York City, where he enrolled at Columbia University to study English. Little did he know his journey would take him to Wall Street on the day the stock market crashed, October 24, 1929, an event that would color his dark depictions of New York City in the poems later collected in his classic Poet in New York. His wanderings would also take him to Coney Island and the Brooklyn Bridge, leading him to write two of the most enduring, nightmarish visions of both places in "Landscape of a Vomiting Multitude (Dusk at Coney Island)" and "Sleepless City (Brooklyn Bridge Nocturne)."
