Alicia Minjarez Ramírez

Longing mitigates
the drunken night,
treasuring the imprint
abolished by desire
that breaks us
and brings together,
intrinsic fire
of profane verses
under the intrigue
of shadows.

Materiality keeps
our bodies tied up to
the lunar instant
of balsamic ether,
burning desires
falling apart
the mossy seduction
of having the absolute void.

You’re dust in the breeze
of my conscious being,
bringing delightful
and melodic essences

inside hollow fruit trees
of worn out headings.
Imprecise and sharp legend
of upcoming evenings,
barking at the sap sight.

Derange me, seduce me, drive me.
Like a consonant plunging
upon the rhetorical memory,
dialect upsetting and chaining us up
beyond our hands.

dementia without sanity
defining my earthly Nirvana,
meanwhile, I belong to you
under the remote
silence glass…
By rubbing
your timely
Translated by:   Alaric Gutiérrez MEXICO.

I find myself
close - distant
to the zephyr breeze,
I question in vain.
Foggy solitudes,
dressed up as equinoxes
in perennial springs.

I require to silence
flooding words,
to silence tears
adorning my face.
Sadness dwelling
like a stowaway
in soul’s murky mirrors.

Absence afflictions
gradually succumb
between my barren hands.
to grasp into hope!
Reason outshines
the fragmented heart
and the bare silence
suffocates the stars.

Stars that won’t shine
upon nostalgia seas
taking away opacities
and a shattered mirror
where my reflection
fades away
right now.

Cracking in my own roots…
dark memories,
empty stealth,
and leaves
scattered on the ground.
Translated by:   Alaric Gutiérrez  MEXICO.

Mute allegory of clouds
feeling my cedars’ roots,
designing the path;
song of blackbirds and orioles,
stunned chimera permuting
fertile figs and pomegranates.

Musical waterfalls
permeate thick
alders and chestnuts,
ethereal decline;
Antioch’s legacy
rinses and distorts
coasts, olives and vines
over the Patara’s coastline.

Emir necromancer
descends from
bare meadows
revealing seeds
to quench the moon
in the subtle geography
of my own shadows.

Your eyes light up
the awoken clay
of jade and honeysuckle,
moistening poems
to clear the air
of the past hours.

Imprecise and concrete trail
upon the wind of days
that intertwines our dawn.
A brief breath of your light
is enough
in the abyss of my night.
Translated by:   Alaric Gutiérrez MEXICO.

Words predict
liquid dawns
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,
from your pen.
Translator: Alaric Gutiérrez


Distant contiguous strokes
Set up the prayers of Anatolia.
Eclectic fragrant spices                   
Clove, sumac, vanilla and cinnamon          
Overflowing cornices.         
Gold, silver, apple tea,
Water pipes, almonds and kaput   
Songs of your lineage!

Indigo horizons
Melt the earth
Of mud and jade
in baklava and honey;
Musical odors
Nocturnal savannas
In the edge of the days.

Bare fingers 
on red-berried mistletoe and oaks
require the transcending kiss,
reaching the limits of touch
bluish declining
of our belongings.

As affable Sultan
dressed up with Habiye silk.
Transcribe my dreams
with watercolors of straight lines
to drown the sun within,
in the bowl of my palms.
Translated by:  Alaric Gutiérrez

Redemptive breeze
imprisons my space,
like raining stars
as fragrant words
at the crescent moon,
salt conspires about
your shooting and lasting

Blue air flutter about
your wet
vertices notes,
the tree’s essence.
Guttural sounds
the horizon.

I sense you
among murmurs
of leaves
liquid shadows,
pigeon’s pieces,

luminance music
of the dreams
we forge.

I find you,
wrong or right,
in haste;
in the rain’s
incessant voice.
Beautiful traveler
of dreamed steps
and arms of fire.

Drowned in
desire-scented steam
I dusk upon
foreign oaks,
as touch produced by
your path;
dark moor
of an old sky
your word of light,
the illusory
of language.
