Three Fragments of Instan

 

By Cecilia Vicuña

  

alba saliva

el instan

 

time bending

tongue

 

entwine

the betwixt

 

double

thread

 

madre

del habla

 

imán

del gen

 

palabra

estrella

 

mother

of time

  

time awakes

 

inside words

 

awayo

 

mi away

 

voy a tejer

mis tres

lenguas

 

away

  

el instante

es la cuerda

vital

 

seco fluir

 

dry elixir

 

words

are the loom

of the stars

 

life's breath

 

la palabra

es la estrella

interior

del estar

 

words

are

the inner

star.
