Similcadencia

Similcadencia written by Mario Bojórquez
Translated from the Spanish by Verónica González

But how do I tell myself, tell you, tell them
that I have, you have, they have, narrowed eyes
If in the back of the eyes, I keep, you keep, they keep, 
The almond of the days and the broken summers. 

But how do I quiet myself, quiet you, quiet them,
This silence is theirs, yours, mine, 
If in my, your, their eyes there are open pigeons
Above fields of blood, that I, you, they 
                                        watch,
						watch,
							watch.
