Paramaconi / Ramón Palomares


So that Paramaconi arrived, the Toromayna
(Look what you bring on your back
—A ditch, a coffin I bring, a coffin
—Not a wound, an abyss, a coffin)

And it really was very deep

And Ulloa said

“You can tell this one has death
He’s dead, you can see his death”

I’m the piece you still haven’t eaten
—the last one— said Paramaconi.

Santiago de León de Caracas (1967)
