Body and Soul – a poetry anthology

‘Che Guevara’ – published by United Press

ISBN 1-84436-331-7

Invited to send poems for publication. As this was a new venture responded with only one. Did they take all that were entered?

This is one of my favourite poems.

Che Guevara

You told me of Che Guevara
Revolutionary never changing
his clothes and a woman
he loved loving him.
I pictured her removing
his sweat stained shirt coarse
trousers and if he wore
an undergarment her hands
crushing them proudly into a tub of soap
squeezing and kneading
the rank essence of him
while he stood
naked before her.
