I’m tired.

5 June 2014

I don’t want to “look forward” to anything any more. I just want a daily cycle: wake, prepare food, work, prepare food, talk, rest, and lay my bones at night frente a frente, until there is no more “forward” to look to.

That’s it.

Dos cuerpos frente a frente 
son a veces dos olas 
y la noche es océano. 

Dos cuerpos frente a frente 
son a veces dos piedras 
y la noche desierto. 

Dos cuerpos frente a frente 
son a veces raíces 
en la noche enlazadas. 

Dos cuerpos frente a frente 
son a veces navajas 
y la noche relámpago. 

Dos cuerpos frente a frente 
son dos astros que caen 
en un cielo vacío.

“Dos cuerpos,” Octavio Paz.
