Pequeña Cicatriz

Escribo porque tengola cicatriz de los sueñosdentro de mi cabeza.

Un golpe secode palabras,unas gotas de ideas dispersasy el olvido vestidode niña sonámbulaque tropieza con el futuroy cae sobre un presente húmedode pis y sudor viejo.

Escribo porque a vecesmi cicatriz no sueña,y su insomniome asusta. [End Page 102]

Small Scar

I write because I havethe scar of dreamsinside my head.

A dry blowof words,a few drops of scattered ideas,and the oblivion dressedas a sleepwalking girlwho stumbles over the futureand falls on the present dampwith old sweat and piss.

I write because sometimesmy scar doesn't sleep,and its insomniascares me. [End Page 103]
