early morning love poem (lamp found under bushel (2))

 

how soft the air,

the gentle rain

the dark

the traffic lights

smell from the bakery

a woman finding her place in the book she´s reading at the bus stop 

(it´s 6.30 in the morning)

and only two hours ago

i left a bar full of people, ears

full of music, made right in front of us,

spun from common knowledge and nothing visible.

Oh look, I´ve just

fallen in love with a ring, a bright

circle of bedding plants

on this soft grey morning,

leaving the city I love.

 

Tan dulce el aire

llovizna tierna

las tinieblas

los semáforos

olor de la panadería

una mujer buscando la pagina del libro en la parada del bus

(son las seis y media)

y solo hace dos horas 

salí de un bar lleno de gente

el oído lleno de música

tocada delante de nuestros ojos,

tejida de sabiduría común

y nada visible.

¡mira! acabo de enamorarme

de un anillo,

un circulo brillante de plantas

en esta mañana suave y gris,

al salir de la ciudad que quiero.
