Reijo Roos (Estonia/Finland)

Reijo Roos is an Estonian-Finnish poet who swims like Robert McDonald in his sea of money, but instead of money, there are words. Words in different languages. Often these words converge into poems, which in turn gather together into poetry collections, like “kured kotkad kajakad” or “tere kas tohib / tere kas võisõ”, or those that have not yet been published.

In 1952, John Cage was asked to write a manifesto for music, and he wrote: “Nothing is accomplished by writing a piece of music”. And indeed, similarly, the poet achieves nothing by writing a poem.
