emergency IV

emergencia IV
in the original Spanish



he comes brings every question
all the answers in disarray

he is alone but less than ever

light of others
light of indecipherable animals

dance don’t dance
wind on his body

he carries all his language with him
he sows everywhere
constant verb
breathes beats burns like nothing
goes out and nothing more

when he greets he says i am
when he says goodbye he says we are

Translated by Curtis Bauer

“emergency” is from Temperatura voz [Voice Temperature] (Barcelona, Pre-Textos, 2010).
