Las palabras tienen que seguir siendo / Guillermo Sucre

Words have to keep being

Words have to keep being what they are
what they have always ceased to be

there are not two languages: the same word that speaks
is the one in silence
but there are two silences: the same word in silence
is not the one that speaks

each word displaces another one that we never manage
to say

{ Guillermo Sucre, La vastedad, Ciudad de México: Editorial Vuelta, 1988}
