Mariano Peyrou

emergency V



he comes and he is a pasture


he comes and he is the reflections the stillness
the surface of adolescent water


             voice irrigate liquids


he comes and he is finger tips
corridor balcony that leads to the day


             voice of a different touch


he comes he has always been there


              runaway voice


he comes and he is an afternoon that crosses the morning
asterisk in the surf
he comes navigates all his sunrise



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