Who I am (Silence)
Elias Letelier

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.
