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).
