Eduardo Escalante


& Darkness Moves Away

 

Try

cheat

sun

even if it is

a devilment

do not pronounce

words with

the edge of tired lips

appease

pain

with the eyes

of innocence

make fire

for cold instances

not to drown

in what

squeezes

rescue

what is gone

grow fruits

to nourish

the dry fountain

anoint

what does not have

crown

convert

the moon

in a verb

cut

with scissors

nightmares

live

without

the sky dictation
