Lost in Translation—Charlene Ashley Taylor

Hay una constelación sobre sus sábanas enormes

Suficientes para acoger un cadaver de gigante

Alguien me dijo que

No sabemos           aquí, en occidente

Lo que es un gigante

Pero enseguida rió y de su boca salieron rosas,

Llenas de espinas recorriendo los tallos,

Para llegar a mis pies



There is a constellation on his huge sheet

Enough to welcome a giant’s corpse

Somebody told me that

We don’t know           here, in the west

What a giant is

But then he laughed and of his mouth came our roses,

Full of thorns covering the stems,

To arrive at my feet
