Las Citas de la Semana


"No puede decir que lo haya comprendido todo. Probablemente, ahora está más confuso que nunca. Pero todos esos momentos que ha contemplado... algo ha sucedido. Los momentos parecen cosas físicas en su mente, como piedras. Al arrodillarse, acercándose a la más cercana, pasando su mano por ella, descubre que es suave y está ligeramente fría.

Comprueba el peso de la piedra; ve que puede levantarla, y también las otras. Puede colocarlas juntas para crear unos cimientos, un dique, un castillo.

Para construir un castillo del tamaño adecuado necesitará muchas piedras. Pero con lo que tiene ya, parece un comienzo aceptable."

Watch her disappear

Tom Waits/Kathleen Brennan


Last night I dreamed that I was dreaming of you
And from a window across the lawn I watched you undress
Wearing your sunset of purple tightly woven around your hair
That rose in strangled ebony curls
Moving in a yellow bedroom light
The air is wet with sound
The faraway yelping of a wounded dog
And the ground is drinking a slow faucet leak
Your house is so soft and fading as it soaks the black summer heat
A light goes on and the door opens
And a yellow cat runs out on the stream of hall light and into the yard

A wooden cherry scent is faintly breathing the air
I hear your champagne laugh
You wear two lavender orchids
One in your hair and one on your hip
A string of yellow carnival lights comes on with the dusk
Circling the lake with a slowly dipping halo
And I hear a banjo tango

And you dance into the shadow of a black poplar tree
And I watched you as you disappeared
I watched you as you disappeared
I watched you as you disappeared
I watched you as you disappeared
