Performance poetry. On inner path. Beauty. contradictions. Love. Loving. Silence. "Personal. Subjective. Limited.Testimonial. Poetic dream. Fictional". "Comrade Bliss Ain't Playing is a performance text published by the Dominican writer and actress Josefina B ez. The lush and lyrical writing wraps around the ideas of mysticism, self-affirmation, spirituality, language, identity, love and courage with a natural ease-and even though it's technically a performance text, it doubles as a long and winding singular poem filled with mischief, sadness, surprise, hope and wonder. Josefina B ez is a master technician of word assemblage and an international performer of the highest order" . Charlie V zquez for Being Latino.
