WHEN I CLOSE MY EYES – Alicia Minjarez Ramírez / Translated by: Alaric Gutiérrez.

Poem by  Alicia Minjarez Ramírez

 

WHEN I CLOSE MY EYES

To: My beloved angel.

Which heaven
looks out for you
when the rain is over?

From abandonment and shelter
supporting the spell
of the Euphrates breeze,
I watch over your name.

Grabbed to the shadow
I want to dissent
over our steps,
call blunting
the five hours
of birds.

The universe
starts and ends
with us…
When I close my eyes.

Translated by: Alaric Gutiérrez.
