FAR AWAY AIR – Alicia Minjarez Ramírez / Translated by: Alaric Gutiérrez

Poems by Alicia Minjarez Ramírez 

 

FAR AWAY AIR

Each sparkle has a distant and severe air.
Dusty breeze undoing
selfless prejudices,
diaphanous sky
of far away shores.
Untellable words!
Sweet craving that leads
and mitigates nostalgia,
Drunkenness of the moment
impossible fight
bold and incandescent soul.
Every sound is a wonderful caress
momentum, track and halo of a transient light.

Each sparkle has a distant and severe air.
I understand the instant is non-existing matter.
Burns like a wound inscribed within our consciousness,
affliction goes away.
Full delight of interrogations and absences,
depths and appearances;
defining the earthly paradise hell
of my own communion.

Each sparkle has a distant and severe air.
I learn to live
in the branches of a secret dream,
of a fiery shade, in the shortened line
of abysmal dementia.
Choleric air of ephemeral tears
Shake up my roots.
Lewd whisper
born from the body, proclaiming the cavity
of long gone solitudes.
