A walk and the wind

Paseo y aire  written by Omar Lara
Translated from the Spanish by Marlen Zaragoza.

She sighed
While asphyxiating a yellow flower between her hands
It was a day like any other in town
And in the mint green church
Before the altarpiece
A hen with a twisted neck
Flew away with the ailments of a child in penumbras
The streets were filled with sunlight and rain without notice

I tried to enter the amber of your chest
Like a bug trapped there for centuries.
