"BESTIAS INBERBES (BEARDLESS BEASTS)" BY ABEL FOLGAR AND YAGO S. CURA
"Bestias Inberbes (Beardless Beasts)" is the latest offering from the dynamic duo of Yago S. Cura and Abel Folgar. This collection of 8 poems--solely about futbol, soccer, the beautiful game--brings together some of the greatest names in futbol.
For example, Folgar's "Ode to Ali Daei" and "Ode to Lev Yashin" mash nicely with Cura's "Ode to La Brujita Veron" or "Ode to Pele". Moreover, this collaboration represent the first time Hinchas has collaborated with Carlos Folgar.
This is Hinchas de Poesia's first zine of 2010. If you feel the way Abel and Yago do about futbol, then this zine is for you!
