A constant thread in Operé’s poetry is travel. Since he left Spain in order to study in the United States his steps have taken him on a journey through two American continents and all around the world. Operé tells us that traveling is for him a source of inspiration and a way to connect with a world that he does not understand. In this way, poetry is a path toward self knowledge and personal expression.

WHAT TIME IS IT IN PAMPLONA


Pamplona’s time
is the time of blood,
fire time on lips,
on afternoons with no diameter,
or time for wine
on sidewalks and cobbles.

It’s a time for being born,
the hour opens doors and closes the bullpen,
time for red silence and breaths held back,
time for dying crazy on a corner
or from a horntip at the boards.
