Y la estatua cay6. Viriles miembros se retarcieran en el palva, vivas. 47 POEMS [1941-1948] Virgin She closes her eyes and inside she is naked and a child, at the foot of a tree. A tiger and a bull rest in her shadow. Three lambs of mist she offers to the tiger, three doves to the bull, feathers and blood. The tiger doesn't want prayers of smoke nor doves the bull: it's you they want. And the doves fly, the bull flies, and she too, naked milky way, flies through a dark and visceral sky. An evil dagger, eyes of a cat and yellowish wings of rattan mat follows her through the air.

Codicia de la boca al hilo de un suspiro suspendida, ojos que no se cierran y hacen sefias y vagan de la lampara a mis ojos, fija mirada que se abraza a otra, ajena, que se asfixia en el abrazo y al fin se escapa y ve desde la orilla como se hunde y pierde cuerpo el alma y no encuentra unos ojos a que asirse ... ~y me invito a morir esa mirada? Quiza morimos solo porque nadie quiere morirse con nosotros, nadie quiere mirarnos a los ojos. Hoy recuerdo a los muertos de mi casa. Al que se fue por unas horas y nadie sabe en que silencio entro.

The greed of her mouth, hanging on the thread of a sigh, her eyes never closing, making signs, wandering from the lamp to my eyes, a fixed gaze that embraces another gaze, far off, that suffocates in the embrace and in the end escapes and watches from the riverbank how the soul sinks and loses its body and finds no eyes to grab hold on ... Was that gaze inviting me to die? Perhaps we die only because no one wants to die with us, no one wants to look us in the eye. Today I remember the dead in my house.
