El cielo

July 17, 2013 in Poetry by rkennedy


1

Es un libro
lleno de niños fantasmas,

muertos y a salvo

y muertos significa
escondidos

o deseando
o no deseando

ser conocidos.

2.

El cielo es simétrico
con respecto a la rotación.

Es hermoso
cuando una cosa cambia

mientras otra
permanece igual.

3.

Redundancias que desvanecen

Intervalos plumosos.

Volutas alternativas.

Estriaciones surgidas
Imaginarias.

“Imaginarias” significa
“visto por humanos”.
