emergency VII



planet emerges
silk and rock
orbits interior spaces
and the fear of


first tracks smaller each time
reciprocal orbits
the desire to keep the sand clean
reflection of each thing


ellipse his circle
leap his mystery
time his weight


his garden his galaxy
his dream his nervous system
his grass his there



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