Drown the Silver Tongue

la nena cantaba
en la esquina

con fósforos entre sus rizos
y una sonrisa
de vida plena
aunque la mugre
la cubría todita.
los dientes brillan

como para alumbrar
luceros.
te espero
mi nenita,
te espero.

he was disappointed
from the highest of realms,
and no one remembered
him after a decade.

y la nena lo buscaba
en monedas
esperando ver su
perfil,
engraved,
but she cannot
tell what grave
he has been assigned,
what bodies
had rotted
to feed single cell
life

la agua viva
agarró el paladar
del que se ahogaba,
y no pudo probar la
sal
que penetraba
sin piedad
los huecos en
la cara.

his lungs were new
jelly fish
expanding. being filled.

la nena, herida y
cansada
finalmente vio
su sonrisa de
niño
y aguanto su suspiró
porque quiso ahogarse
en el momento.

she wished to share
his last view of the shore.
with salt on her brow
