Who I am (Silence)
Elias Letelier

Email this article
 Printer friendly page

I am:

the son of a nocturnal crystal;

the roof of the celestial planets;

the starry smile of the emptiness.

 

I am the twisted encounter of the missing ones;

the navigated invasion of the elements;

the uninformed metamorphosis of metal.

 

I am the water,

the permanency of jasper,

and the obstinate movement of apple wine.

 

I am the eardrum of the thunderbolt

that calms down with the rain;

I am the insurrection of a discourse without end

and all of that which does not conclude.
