Holy Grail
while I was sleeping
the bird of fire delighted
between its wings
dream blazed—burning
terrors and elegies
I blossomed into flaming
violet while my
name, in silent flight
within my soul,
                   drank and sang
        until dawn
I Beg
my poor love, sitting there
crowned by the rain
in your head blooms a gale
sadness springs from every nail
sunlight striking
the glass with splendor
a mead tunnel screaming to infinity
Drown me in your sea!
                                      …salt, glow…
The Weaver
Light travels from
your lip to my lip
in a thread of drool
from your body to mine
weaving an Elohim
the size of
a rainbow
in my bed
naked gold
The Waiting
What a sad life!
How sad you are!
under the weather
a prisoner craving
a visión of the rose bloom
go and feel in
the rustle of your branches
a whisper from the icy grin
walking through the cervices
in the mud of your soul
Ah my girl!
in your stillness I behold
the lost spring
open your eyes to
the ocher silhouettes
in the trash
learn to dance.
Translation: Douglas Cole and María Del Castillo Sucerquia
