¿Porque me regañas?
if I had only known he would climb the wall
no more green trucks
could find him twisting their senses, your common
sense walking carefully
as he fell seven stories to the
past the planets, days of the week
out there, alone on the new Berlin wall in reverse
wanting in not out
across this bloody line between fiction
bible and fact
cuento e historia
God mercy captives crossing over their
red sea night .
the wire, the fence, the desert mountain was a
wall to his left and right
where the Lord caused the wind to
blow all night
and the water went out between
us, my friend
when you said he was worthless, throw him away
don't write about him ugly
you know you wrote me about it
por que no
used your european pen to scold me
but then the time came that you, too,
and never came back . from the
other side .
where space shuttle empires make
to get into space . where that all-night
wind came down .
he knew it . you knew it .
¿so porque me regañas?
why do you errode me, break me,
knock me down?
I only wanted to be friends .
but still you sneered when he jumped
the fence to hell instead
of this gate where your birth
passes you free
where the river makes the mountain kiss
and tell the sea .
