Russia is waging a disgraceful war on Ukraine. Stand With Ukraine!

"Entre les Trous de la Memoire" (English translation)


"Entre les Trous de la Memoire"

Se abre la puerta
y el río va a entrar,
junto a las llamas
se mantendrá;
agua se inflama
y fuego se va.
Fría verdad
en eterna humedad.
La niña lee,
en transparencia,
un libro viejo;
sacando esencia,
buscando sentencia
y dando distancia
a media estancia
del mal y del bien.
Y su fantasma
mira al cielo;
al globo volando
en medio del hielo.

"Entre les Trous de la Memoire"

A door is opened
And the river comes in
Along with the flames
It will stay
Water ignites
And fire is put out
Cold truth
In eternal humidity
A girl reads
In transparency (1)
An old book
Extracting essence
Looking for a saying
And keeping distance
In between
Right and wrong
And her ghost
Looks up to the sky
To the balloon flying
In the middle of ice
