horse hay simple / sencilla paja, caballo

horse hay simple

when
you step solo—turfinfinite

& you in-body swallow flames
that no fire wants—

you shed
ash that is left

emptied—
you write

light

 

sencilla paja, caballo

cuando
tu andas solo—tierradentro

y tragas en tu cuerpo las llamas
que ningún fuego quiere—

arrojas
la ceniza que queda

vaciado—
escribes

luz
