Why Does He Become Sick From What For Others...?
Why does he become sick from what for others
by Carlos Barbarito
is a remedy? Why is the book
that even a child can understand
dark in his eyes? Why is
the language that anyone speaks
strange for him, incomprehensible?
The day that constitutes the present
is not his day, as even less the night,
the dog that barks from the barren land,
the thigh exhibited
in a corner by a slut,
the remote country that is set to flames…
soil that through refusing so often
suddenly became infertile
and ended up in prose, frozen lightning
in the opaque mirror of the earth.
