    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…

    Wooden out by axe,both my worries and the fallen dried oak.Was it too much to say what I said?My anxiety delivered by the sharp steel, cutting out chips of wait. De un hachazo abajo, Tanto mis preocupaciones como el caído roble. ¿Dije demasiado? Mi ansiedad es acero afilado, Cortando pedacitos de espera.

    Pray for the one to come Oh…may I ask for them to read?Perhaps to watch sports once a week but read?And yes, to write letters I might amused enjoy?I know, I know.It’s not for me to decide upon.Not like I can impose my vow.But… isn’t it a bit logical for these points to be main and upright?I mean… I’m sending letters to fish out a pair.Or a friend if my luck is shallow and unfair.A penpal, thus I ask for. Pidiendo por quien vendrá Oh… ¿Puedo pedir que lea? ¿Quizá que vea deportes una vez a la semana pero lea? Y sí… ¿Que escriba cartas buenas? Sí, sí. No me…

    Was it too soon?Yes, it was.Today I’ll fear his replay’s delay.Did I nag too much?Might have.Anxiously crazy I’ll grow,Until I can have the next one. ¿Demasiado pronto? Si, lo fue. Hoy el miedo es, una réplica después. ¿Un poco de más el regaño? Puede… Ansiosa, loca… Hasta que venga otra.

    Slow, a little bit, so much of none.Entertain it like a child nursed to fat.I tend the warp and a thread at a time,An entwine of woe disguised.And if too blatant a fire,To smolder ashes I’ll domain my side. Lento, un poco, mucho y nada. Detenida como un niño a engordar. Tiendo la urdimbre y el hilo, Un entretejido de pedir y gemir. Y si arden las llamas, De este lado dominaré ese fuego, Solo rescoldos vea.
