Two men are dying
but only one of them
is my husband.



“The third section of ‘Any Sky’ by Micaela Chirif contains nine poems about death. Those nine poems are exceptional and must be one of the best series of poems on any subject in a long time. Chirif does not speak of abstract death but of concrete, literal death; the death of José Watanabe. Here Chirif, her poems and the reader do well to give up distinguishing between Subject of the enouncement from Subject of the enunciation. Who do we want to differ with that? Who do we want to please? That asepsis does not correspond to this series. Rather, as Toko’s epigraph says, literal death that makes any poem about her “a hoax,” is a death without a trope.
Mario Montalbetti

“Any sky is a book of poems and not just poems in a book. Those that it houses seem to ignore the rhetorical figures that poetry frequents, but they all speak a language that says much more than their mere words, that transmits that dense supraliterality with which poetry touches us. Some of them are truly High Poetry.”
Abelardo Oquendo

“Any sky is read and written as a process in which silence becomes a voice. In which the distance between being alive or dead is subverted and where one trusts and loves equally. In fragments of this work, it is made clear that everyday routine in this couple, for example, is not a defect or a problem, but on the contrary, is a closeness full of happy codes and rituals.”
Andrea Cabel
