The house

La casa written by: Omar Lara
Translated from the Spanish by: Jazmín Barragan

This is my house
I am going away
It’s now your house
I’ll be happy knowing that you are in
My house
Who I am and will become stays by your side
There’s a dear bug in a nook
Tied to a shadow
Let’s say it’s my love
Or love in general
Love love
As if it were a simple word
As if it were a nice bug
That went away
Up the blue stairs
And there is still something left of me
Like a bug that howls
In a nook.
