Ship of Fools

Que difícil es caminar
sobre la cubierta de un crucero
a la deriva cuando el mundo
continúa sumergio en la sordera.
No escucha el llanto de auxilio
de los niños que solo piden
tocar los dedos de la mano
de sus padres, tísicos fantasmas
mudos con cruces tatuadas
en la cara. Que difícil es respirar
sobre la proa de un crucero
de quimeras
