    Nice and short.Perhaps sold by meter as fabric goes.No matter the length,When it comes from a friend.I want to know if tentacles of green,Have engulfed your living.Or if frozen at night,The puddles of snow, reflecting the Spring light of the blurry moon.Maybe you moved your bed to the ceiling.I think I’ll stop here and goodbye, indeed a post script… shall I? Corta y agradable. A lo mejor por metro, como de tela. Sin importar que tan larga, Si eres tú amigo. Quiero saber si tentáculos verdes, Se han comido la sala. O si de noche se congelan, Los charcos de nieve, reflejando borrosa una luna de primavera. Tal vez, la…

    Slow, slow.I’ve hurried before.Avoidant or needy,I want to change my old self.I’d love to be steady.Even if not ready.Thus letters are better.A bit dragging my feet,A bit moving on.Sometimes it’s not fun. Lento, lento. Me apresuré antes. Seca o encimosa, Deseo cambiar mi viejo ser. Ser un poco más constante, Si es que no estoy lista aún. Así, las cartas me van bien. Un poco arrastrando los pies. Un poco hacia adelante. A veces, divertido no es.

    Empty but the spider in the corner. Empty but the feelings all forsaken. Empty but the wishes all crushed. That’s my mail box when I notice again,  you don’t write anymore. Vacío pero la araña en el rincón. Vacío pero lo que quedó olvidado de corazón. Vacío pero los deseos aplastados, Este es mi buzón cuando recuerdo, Que cartas tuyas ya no llegan.

    A new friend, yay.A new way to think how to erase myself from sight.Tough that other time I sent back unopened that envelope.Am I trash?No way to take this or that.Let’s bask in the sun.Warm words for friends and like.No time for those who are not.A poor investment of energy,Your choice, my privilege.

    A new letter arrives!No, not this one…Here it comes!Another disappointment.How much more?Rain falls scarce over this plant.I’ll turn a cactus by the times ¡Una nueva carta! No, no la que espero. ¡Aquí llega! Decepción completa. ¿Cuánto más? No llueve sobre esta planta. Un cactus para entonces…

    Further by And so we might be torn from one another by a single pinch of space… a badly taken word. A walled silence of rancour. Then, then we’re further and further from us. Lejano Y así desgarrados por una pizca de espacio… Una palabra mal dicha. Rencor amurallado de silencio. Y cada vez más lejanos, tú y yo.

    To my Russian penpal

    To my Russian penpal Привет! Как дела?Are you, a citizen; doing fine under the economic block?I heard the dollar went up,Your money as paper and no more.Is Moscow really going out to diss their beloved leader Nim now?Maybe a news’ tale?Fast served food we are already fed up with.Dear friend, why did you say youngs are being forced to fight?Can’t they refuse and boo?I can’t find in my heart to hate you.You are like us all.The only perk is you living under a flag to despise. A mi amigo por correspondencia en Rusia Привет! Как дела? ¿Estás bien tú, individuo común; con el bloqueo económico? Escuché que el dólar se…
