Funeral March

In this violin march

The music jumps

Under the sense of touch

Like floating ropes

Cross the edges of times

With silk threads and girl dreams

Between Do and Fa

Sol and Si

Like notes hanging

From a notebook

They sing chords of moons

While a girl play

To save the early mornings!


Die like Pharaohs

Let me find your faithful mystery

Of pyramids and Pharaohs

Undress you on the more of so much gold

To able to taste the vessels

Of the flash of silver of sarcophagus

Let me resist the curses of the graves

That when opening them death spiders

The secret that rodents keeps

By the Scholl of eaten sand

Recline in my heart

About the afternoon

While Egypt die in white ibis

The city faithful temple of archers

Of restless of pauses in hieroglyph

And monolithic portrayals for Cleopatra!



Damn earth!!

Why do you drink the water?

Let me quench my thirst.


I only owe you thanks

Then Yahweh

Formed man of the dust

From the ground

And breathed into their nostrils

The breath of life

And there was man

With breath and life

Genesis 2, 7

Hidden behind my eyes a handkerchief

To dry my tears

Before they fall

They should not know

That a woman is weak

Nor should they see a lock mold

Sometimes I keep

Myself in the corners

Where I am

With the dust of my house

They we discovered

To be so related

When I was dust

And I owe you

Thank you

I discovered that I was born

Born from a rib

I offer my sex in the apple

And in the sustained groin of the male

The demons that

Inhabit it, predict me.
