Latvia’s Jānis Raups says Don't leave the EUOIA

Latvia’s Jānis Raups, is currently being co-created with Simon Perril as the last assigned EUOIA poet, says Don't Leave. More here.

Raups is an obscure poet-philosopher obsessed with chromatics, who has been sporadically working on a long lyric sequence of poems in distrust of the neurological inconsistency of colour behaviours. His birthdate, 1967, is actually false; 1967 is the date he learnt of, and briefly came into contact with, during time spent at Heidelberg University, Dr Wolgang Huber, who went on to found the Socialist Patients’ Collective / Patients’s Front. This organisation’s commitment to turning illness into a weapon had a major impact on Raups.
