Noche acabada en día (Night ending in day)

by María Olaondo (jump to English version)

Sobre el azulejo del suelo
se refleja la luna
¿o es el sol?
Es de noche
¿o es de día?
Estoy despierta
¿o dormida?
Pomos que giran
Puertas que se cierran
Cielos que descubren
Un mar de grietas
Mi cabeza pesa
Mi cuerpo suda
Mis ojos se cierran
He vuelto a tropezar
Olvidé lo que aprendí
Sin rumbo otra vez
Permanezco
tumbada sobre la nada
tiempo…tiempo…tiempo…

 

English version:

Night ending in day

On the tiled floor
Lies the moon’s reflection
Or is it the sun?
It is night
Or is it day?
I am awake
Or am I asleep?
Turning knobs
Doors that close
Skies that uncover
A sea full of holes
My head weighs down
My body perspires
My eyes close
I have stumbled again
I forgot what I had learned
Without direction
I remain
Lying in this nothingness
Time … time … time…
