  10797.     

Of Colors That You Interchanged

i have read it once from your
translations:

the red mountains
the green sea
the violet clouds
the blue sands

the black herons
the white eagles

everything goes
wrong when you
fall out of love

everything goes
awry when another
lover leaves your
door, when another

part of you dies
your fingers

those that
put the color of
your paints simply
show the distorted
face of
truth

your hands tremble
your fingernails stiff
dead and black.

Of Cottons And Feathers

cottons are found
on the floor

feathers on the table
from the window

the wind blows and carries them
inside
the bed is well kept
blankets carefully folded
and pillows removed
of creases

something inside me is as light
as cottons and feathers
something inside me is well folded now
like blankets
something in my heart are pillows
removed of
any crease

i triumphed i did it
now i can soundly sleep
as the wind from the window
blows me
into the land of dreams
where i can be
nothing but
just the spectator

  10799.     

Of Course, Soon You Will Grow Cold

This love of mine
That you always doubt
Despite the passion
We always have,

Is not always strong
To keep you warm
Of course, you soon
Will grow cold as ice
In my hand and so soon
You shall melt like
Water slipping through
My fingers,

I am ready for this
I have kept the other
Hand warm to hold
My other hand when
The night gets
Colder and you are
No longer there.

Of Dogs And Men And Christmas Traditions

do not ever get me
wrong
i am not a negative
energy

oh, i just remember
Schopenhauer
i do not have to
misspell his name
for i know his work
by heart
Arthur that's it


the dogs tonight
are afraid
all these bombings
and noise in the streets
of firecrackers and
spending explosions

do they not know how
sensitive are those
dog ears?

got a book to read
and i am lost inside it

do not get me wrong
i am not bitter
i am just realistic you
know

you know what real is
i hope you know
how it is to be just
simply
realistic about this
life


no fantasies now
no illusions of stars and moons
plain acceptance

dogs do not understand this
a dog's life is all to shallow
and narrow
and there is fear
that this world is nothing
but just
an ending about an explosion


these dogs hide under my feet
like fleas
and i fully understand now
how is it to be an animal
and stupid and afraid.

oh, this Christmas bursts
and outbursts
the children are running
under the smoke
shrieking

how can ever men understand
the loves and fears of dogs?

it is this day of the absurd
and all justifications end
that way
i cannot understand this
and i am giving up

well, well well, this is
actually the true beginning of wisdom


of dogs and men
of Christmases and
left overs

happy dogs and sad men
women with no cares
children with scars and
self-righteous institutions
and more births for sins
and names for new saints

meanwhile, another explosion
is done
merry merry Christmas everyone

do you know why this dog
is hiding in my room?
it is your firecracker you fool!
