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.
