Harry R. Wilkens was born in 1945 in the French-American garrison town of Kaiserslauten (in the former French Occupation Zone of Germany), nicknamed "K-Town" by the American GIs. While many of his school friends left for the USA, he remained in Europe, writing newspaper articles and poetry in German and French. Fron 1977 to 1981, he published an anarchrist quarterly CONFLICT, in Bavaria. In September 1997, he founded with some docker poets the DOCKER Movement for a free, non-academic poetry to be accessible to everybody. His poems appeared in many magazines in Europe, in Asia, and in the USA. Selected poems were published in 1997 in The Hit Man, Translated into Arabic. Another small press poetry collection followed the same year in French as Terre Promise and in 1998 - Zombies. Harry R. Wilkens has been living in Geneva, since 1991, where he is married to a Swiss poetess and ballet dancer.Review:
Harry R. Wilkens comes again and again. Only this time in your face. Harry's new book of poems is like unfinished cement, or better stones cast upon stones. These poems are unfinished images with raw surfaces, with shards of metal protruding. They are crumbling bricks on the concrete floor. He speaks "sotto voce" here. Prosaic devices are held together by spittle and Harry's sheer will. Poetic expressions are frozen-solid. He satirizes life and laughs at the urgency of penises and embracing lips. Only, this time he outruns himself. -- Erich von Neff, San Francisco, 1999
