Olmec woman

Imagen olmeca  written by Omar Lara
Translated from the Spanish by Guadalupe Robles

I like that woman
With her knees together 
And her arms crossed
And her eyes shut
And her head bowed
And her brain raw

I go to that woman
With my knees together
And my arms crossed
And my eyes shut 
And my head bowed
And my brain raw 
I go to that woman

Has she thought of the dream
Of parting our knees
Of uncrossing our arms
Of awakening our eyes
Of raising our head
Of blazing our brain?

I like that woman

I go to that woman
She has a wing and I have
The claw

I dream that woman
It would seem
That sometimes
She too
		dreams of me.
