Souffle de Mer - A Siren Song for Cris Gutierrez

como agua tibia sobre hollejo frío
la hoguera que encumbre mis mercerías
un hálito de calor que disimula
el vaho de varón espejismo
mis labios acogen tu aliento

acullá tiniebla me conmueve un escalofrío
es la penumbra de tu alejamiento; se lleva
la fayuca que fue mi fantasía
y dejas en mi solo la fiebre
este llanto de poesía traslado a un sollozo

sintonizo tu albedrío,
quienes son cuyas cosas:
versos pareados; palabras que marchitan
sobre nubes secas de arrebol
y una vida sin color

like warm water over cold skin
the flame that elevates my notions
a warm exhale that occults
the mist of male illusion
my lips take in your breath

the coming darkness moves in me a chill
the shadow of your departure, it carries
the contraband that was my fantasy
and leaves me fevered,
this cry of sobbing poetry

in tune with your will,
those are things which:
couplets; words that fade
over dry clouds of pink
and a life without color


     Pasaran más de mil años, muchos más
     Yo no sé si tenga amor -la eternidad
     Pero allá, tal como aquí, en la boca llevarás
     Sabor a mi

     A thousand years will pass, many more
     I don't know if love exists in eternity
     But there, just like here [On your lips] you will carry
     A taste of me     - Álvaro Carrillo - Sabor a mi

As an OS orphan, guess I'll make myself at home here. Here's a repost in remembrance of Sirenita and OS days past
