Escoges / Juan Sánchez Peláez

You Choose

You choose what vibration to begin

A flame is trembling in the dark alcove

The wheels that swing the sea are geraniums

Green is a gloomy steed

The sun’s open-mouthed step

A blind horizon murmurs orphaned

Presences demand

You select your ubiquitous love

Her bonfires and her vast river’s body

In the being under what cornices protect

You inflate

You deploy the candles

And you drag the uncertain scribble with eyes and hunger.

Rasgos comunes (1975)

{ Juan Sánchez Peláez, Obra poética, Barcelona: Editorial Lumen, 2004 }
