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
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).
