Poem X

(This poem was co-written with a talented Dominican writer)

The flames of the axes from Earth are stationed in his eyebrows.
He kisses with his feet the unconscious mind.
I’ve seem him in the foam of the wind, naked as a hurricane.
He is one, inside of millions of thoughts.
The mirror is his age without
a flesh tissue from an orgasm with an expiration date. I want to hug him…
unnamed in the tentative curves of his existence.
Him — unreachable and fleeting, without a body and a breath from the universe.
One who lives in a jail inside the abdomen of the horizon.
He would be the intense desire
until he stops being what he will never be.

And perhaps it never will be.
But in his attempt, he has given me everything that can be given.
Torrents of stroking caress down the
backbone of the Galaxy.
Illusions of having his sight embodied
in my horizon, and let the sea foam alone embrace our bodies.
Merge into one.
And wake up in the gusting arms of the wind,
which encompasses with the rapidly beating of our beats.
While the crystal clear reflection of his eyes shows me the infinite tortuous
pleasure that lurks in the womb of desire.
He — volatile as the wind, faceless
name among millions of thoughts.
Meanwhile,he offers me the world
without being.
And maybe, it will never be.

“Los platos ma’ bueno’ son los de tu espaldarazo
Los platos ma’ bueno’ son a las 12PM
cuando el sol se prende en fogón
Los platos ma’ bueno’ son
bueno ese arroz
moros y cristianos
y esa lengua que la bautiza
cuando tiene la frente sudando
a repollo
lejos de su tierra.”

“The best dishes are the ones from your
backing
The best dishes are at 12PM
when the sun catches on fire
The best dishes are the good ones
that good rice
Moors and Christians
and that tongue that baptizes
when the forehead is sweating
cabbage
far from home.”
