Elegy for my mother

I'm counting the hours

in your closed eyelashes

In our mosques

hear the wail of the wind.

Heaven had sent clouds

to take you.

Today you will travel lonely,

beyond your silence.

I will follow you

Surpassing stars.

Should I need to know

Your future home.

You let me dry in spirit

and I have cold.

But if that is you to say goodbye,

Do not, frail mother!

Farewell!

THE FALL OF THE ACROBAT

Everything went well.

On the extended wire

Balanced like a bird.

The orchestra would finish,

with the signal for the end:

a gong.

Like a feather would land,

so light and with finesse.

Would acknowledge

with a pirouette,

like a dancer.

Everything went well.

On the extended wire

Balanced like a turkey.

While realizing,

that underneath the feet

there was no more wire.
