    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.
