Náutico

written by: Sergio A. Ortiz

@Saore

 

escarcha que no se desprende
de mis manos—entre flor y canto
rosa y viento logramos vivir sonámbulos
existiendo en ambos lados
de una frontera—campanadas al alba
de una aldea amordazada
en el limbo de las palabras perdidas.
El murmullo cimbró la tierra insular
y fui aires del pasado que descienden
a nuestras zonas dolorosas de mano
de la miseria y la violencia.
