INT TALLER DIA

La oficina esta vacia . una luz matinal blanca lo envuelve todo
Ella esta dibujando en su moleskine morada
La radio esta puesta en la Beethoven,
(la unica radio que Nestor tiene guardada, aparte de la USACH)
tocan a la puerta
entra JAZU (con su pelo naranjo) y la saluda
(hay dialogo pero no quiero escribirlo aun)
le pregunta por el hermano
ELLA no sabe que responder
(aunque responde por sus manos)
Jazu da vueltas por el taller de su hermano
observa como Ella se ha sentado en el escritorio de Nestor

Nestor solo quiere terminar la pagina web

ha entrado en un modo nefasto. cero relacion con el entorno
Ella no le ha dicho de la Beca en Finlandia
Jazu se entera por los papeles en la gran mesa del taller
y unas manchas de humedad
Jazu deja de bailar. se descompensa

Baja presion

La peor de las realizaciones

Ella la queda mirando
Jazu le conversa sobre proyectos
sobre el grupo
Ella se vuelve esquiva
Jazu la sienta en una silla y la da vueltas
Ella no logra sonreir
Jazu se desploma en el suelo
la mira haci…

Al achunte
es tambien de adrede
dices al achunte
y es tambien de adrede

La Precordillera serpentina
Uno y algo se comparten
La precordillera y mi socio
La maravilla se muestra pasiva

moleskine (2014 - 2015)

siameses emocionales
relaciones organicas
injertos de emociones
puentes de gestos

she's astonishly beautiful
has crooked theeth
but ashtonishly styleful
has strange clothes
but not strange distasteful
has my heart and soul
but my soul is viciously

        meaningful

------------------------
como buscarte?
como encontrarte?
como dibujarte?
como te cuento
que echo de menos?

ya no se que buscar

que palabras mas vacias
intentos infintos de ocultarte
cafes irritantes en el estomago

que harás esta noche?

yo estaré

    soñando

        por ahi
-----------------------
el hecho de que este tomando colacion en campus oriente
es una jugada del destino o una elección (sur)real?
todo un latin lovers
como en 8 1/2
tomandome un cafe y haciendo nada
produciendo nada

comodidad, le dicen,

esperando el resultado de una reunion
que va a caer en una estafa

habrán conversado asi de mi?
como un weon cualquiera?
repartiendome cual naipe?

        chi lo sa...
