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.
