Look at the name

Poem By Perejaume

Look at the name
in the mouth of one passing through.
Look at the place
in the mouth of one who lives there.
It's almost herb-like, the word,
and the air keeps on gilding and gilding
like a gigantic frame.

If you tried to speak to him
with his own words
you would see the air enter your eyes
and like a tree
your vision tremble.

Translated by Graham Thomson

Faced with the bough in bloom

Faced with the bough in bloom,
above the extraordinary
materials beginning to open,

A land full of light

A land full of light,
a land where light might accumulate,
heaped and burning:
a whole estate of light.
