Bruno Keats Öijer (born 26 November 1951 in Linköping, Sweden) is a renowned contemporary Swedish poet.


Öijer was born in Linköping in 1951. His first collection of poems, Sång för anarkismen (lit. Song for Anarchism) was published in 1973.[1]

Öijer is perhaps most appreciated as a stage performance poet, and he has made notable appearances in front of large audiences. During the 1970s, he was a part of poetry group Vesuvius.[2]

One of his appearances was that in Stockholm on June 6, 2003, at the occasion of the national day concert by Kent.
