HORIZON – Alicia Minjarez Ramírez / Translated by: Alaric Gutiérrez

Poem by Alicia Minjarez Ramírez



Silvery squawks
Inspiring wind
Sound smells
Weaving and evocating
Blue mythologies,
Illusory back and forth
Of time.

Neptune dilutes
The slow walk
Of topsails
Upon sand ridges
flooded by foam.

Brief controversy
Dancing the song
Of rocks.
Flowing cosmogonies
Hedgehog delirium
Beyond symbols.
Docile declining
Of waves,
Bastions of light
Refined by thorns.

Wounded sob exploding
Like a scream
Confining its destination
In the throat,
Earth’s helpless breath
Languishing forever,
Like wood
Permeating and transforming
The dilated ocean
Within yourself.

I state your name
Unknown for me
And learn the burnt
Thick sunset, circumspect
Nautical rumor
Of distant essences,
Transfiguring the horizon.
