emergency VI

emergencia VI
in the original Spanish

he raises his hands
voice of his body
to touch the light

when he says red he says i see
when he moves he says i listen

he opens he closes
fascination anterrior to the symbolic
like the vital dance of objects

he hides he shows
again yes no

scarcity of hands
cause of all flight

he opens his eyes
to touch the light

Translated by Curtis Bauer

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