Nuevos poemas: XX / Reynaldo Pérez Só

New Poems: XX

it refuses
to come out into the sun anymore the shadow
is warm and covers

it can’t
it must wait a little more

words threaded to a nonexistent sun

it’s made of shadow
it’s only made of shadow.

Translator’s note: Reynaldo Pérez Só (Caracas, 1945) will be the poet honored this year at the 8th Festival Mundial de Poesía 2011, next month in Caracas.
