Museum of Ash 1920 1439 Xe M. Sanchez

Your eyes
are a comfortable religion
for those poems
which want to find
a last hope.
I am your fervent devout.
I make for you this sacrifice
of pagan words
written in Pompeii
in an imaginary bonfire.
I am a museum of ash.

 

Original version in Spanish:

MUSÉU DE POVISA

Por Xe M. Sánchez

 

Los tos güeyos
son una relixón afayadiega
pa los poemes
que nagüen por atopar
una cabera esperanza.
Ero’l to devotu fervorosu.
Faigote esti sacrificiu
de pallabres paganes
escrites en Pompeya
nuna foguera imaxinaria.
Ero un muséu de povisa.
