Nuevos poemas: IV / Reynaldo Pérez Só

New Poems: IV

some animals
when others climb so

because the waves arrive outside the water
to the foam

they are like that each day in
exchange for sun

more slowness

if we are rough
we run if the opposite
animates us
the soul lies down in the body

other animals are small
they barely breathe
by sun.
