emergency XI

emergencia XI
in the original Spanish



we go there together and alone
this patio is so big it reaches childhood
and a vertical drum rises to the sky

rhythm violence of his bodies
of his numerous

distant and he runs this way
game request of the impossible
of another complicity

the others jump we
look at them they protect us to look
is to build oneself a ceiling a sky

who knows his voice his own

ceiling sky of childhood
tenderness tale of us

Translated by Curtis Bauer

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