Unbridled yellow


– Translation by MEGAN WEBSTER
The patios and clotheslines
like children’s slides and some kinds of flies
are yellow
Your eyes
my love
at times
The yellow in the rooster
the marimba
the potter
sing in Maria’s hands

are yellow and poisonous
like sulphur, thirst, mirages

Tomatoes are yellow
when they are green
dreams, when they are not red or blue
vitamin B-12, pollen, bile
The wagon
the windmill
are yellow
like the reflection of the water
The Statue of Liberty
from so much
cumulated guano
At times the moon
cry of a newborn
the circular flight of sparrows
a girl’s sparse shorts
