A girl was combing her hair

“Una niña peinaba su pelo” by Omar Lara
Translated from the Spanish by Marlen Zaragoza

In Făurești a girl was combing her hair
Her hair longer than an albatross flight
It came all the way here
Her hair longer than a dream flight
Came to me
A girl was combing her hair
I could barely see her back one afternoon in Făurești
Her back covered in the languid hair
That came all the way here
The girl and the flight and the languid hair
She was combing in June.
