OMENS –  Alicia Minjarez Ramírez / Translated by: Alaric Gutiérrez

Poem by Alicia Minjarez Ramírez

 

OMENS

Words predict
liquid dawns
dismembering
your breath.

Faceless tears
intercepting a wind
of circumspect aphorisms,
sparrows in flight.

Scoped sign upon
the pearls of your laugh,
ambiguous illusions
I drown in your pipe dream.

Match up utopia
the memory of days,
intolerable prose
in the fire of my blood.

Comets watching us
conspiring over shadows
of a present past,
lost and found
waterfalls in your forest,
moon spells.
fallen spells,
omens
from your pen.
