I Don’t Ask For Much


They remain to me a dream

and a white devotion

to the awaited.

I stretch the mind

to the echo of other skies.

I don’t ask for much.

Only a follower

of my heavy pursuing me.




The Triumph Of The Drama


The terror explodes

as bustle and confession

of silences

by the eyelids.

Its color is terrible

in the archives of innocent marrows.

They endanger the shout, the triumph of the drama

heels of Jews, veins embodied in coal

and shells of breath without rest.

Hands crash and stripes of lightning.

At the horizon wrecks of dust

search for the fabric

of the remaining memory.




A Fistful Of Sea


On the boundary of an ocean floor

the unripe sound

of a life stolen.

A fistful of sea

returns with sweat

and the weight

of narrow deserts

in a ghost.

It is a terror

the hunger and the thirst

that in a dinghy

begins her end.
