El poema que escucha mi amigo / Alfredo Silva Estrada (1933-2009)

The Poem My Friend Listens To

In the poem when my friend listens to it

the echo of the earth is prolonged

Silence returns to the throat

the pores of the page reabsorb it

A certain transparency reveals itself in the humus

if we say humus

feeling the connivance of the earth

its indolence necessary to our pain

When the friend receives my poem

a foreign song arrives with the air

that envelops us

{ Alfredo Silva Estrada, Al través, Caracas: Angria Ediciones, 2000 }
