tiene
corta el fuego con agua que no
jefe de sus propias intenciones
sucinto a sus propios pensamientos

para algo deberian servir
estos lapices, no es cierto?

alguna tinta deberia salir
de tales aparatos, alguna norma
de tales arañas

escrituras raras, letras raras
dejar fluir la consciencia
dejar fluir lo que uno lleva adentro

sacarle fotos a todo
sacarle fotos a nada

escribir, escribir y seguir escribiendo
la vida es un cuaderno vacio

lleno de hojas sin llenar
el tipo va creyendo que no cree
hasta que crea, hasta que se hace

inviable

domingo, 15 de enero de 2012


una elipse de cantantes placidas
una corriente calida que no cae
los arrepentdos nichos del sobre azul
asi es como la brisa humeda cae sobre
y una aire calido envuelve el dia que no hubo perdon
cada dia una tela se moja con su olor
cada dia se levanta el telon y su marca no se borra
a lo derecho y a lo satisfecho
eso es un desprecio amplio
una cofradia bastarda sin piedad
que lanza caracteres sin verdad
el cónsul de un fusil
y el consuelo de un inutil
una vereda no factible
un verdad inconcebible
nada me queda mas que nombrar
que escribir asi es futil
una cosa es segura
para no llegar junto a ti
