A Man / Un hombre

Todos los poemas traducidos del inglés al castellano por Jorge R. Sagastume

A Man

A man is screaming in his bathroom,
and the neighbours mistake it for singing.
The door is locked, the windows barred,
but the noise goes through the walls,
and the neighbours mistake it for singing.
One says: 'He hasn't a note in his head',
another: 'He sounds happy, the monster',
and a foreigner strolling in the street below
marvels: 'What exuberance, what brio
these people have!'
          What noise
can the man himself think he is making? [End Page 12]

Un hombre

Un hombre grita en el baño,
y los vecinos confunden grito con canto.
La puerta está cerrada con llave y las ventanas enrejadas,
pero el ruido penetra a través de las paredes,
y los vecinos confunden grito con canto.
Uno dice: 'no tiene una pizca de musicalidad',
otro: 'el maldito parece ser feliz',
y un extranjero que se pasea por la calle
se maravilla: 'qué exuberancia, qué brío que
tiene esta gente!'
          Y el hombre en el baño,
¿qué opinará sobre el sonido que sale de su boca?
