Sé: 62 / Luis Alberto Crespo

Be: 62

Adriano, Eugenio:

those who departed stayed in the background over there
they’ve preferred thinness to their presence

their voice a movement of their arms
one of them waves his dry shirt

the unfindable country distances them
and a leaf the entire wind takes them away

in the torpor from whence they’ll never return
there’s a bird on the floor with ants for eyes

when you lean your head and think of them.

{Luis Alberto Crespo, , Caracas: Monte Ávila Editores, 2009}
