corolla of (one’s) existence squatting there stiff bas-reliefs ourselves asking why so many dogs at the end of the night and if those who loved us will know where our bones ended up concealed for ever as they are and pins on the lips.

Translated from Spanish by Nora Isabel Degado

corola de la existencia allí en cuclillas bajorrelieves abarrotados preguntándonos porqué tantos perros al final de la noche y si aquellos que nos amaron sabrán dónde fueron a para nuestros huesos disimulados para siempre entre manuscritos y alfileres en los labios.
