Commentary II (saint theresa)

Selected Poems of Juan Gelman
 translated by Hardie St. Martin

Commentary II (saint theresa)

with my love running over and spilling/
all around me the miniscule animals
grow fat feeding on your absence/
or is it your presence
makes me childish like feet crushing
sadnesses on the edge of what it is about to sing/
like a magnificent victory where
my souls are reflections of you?
