THE WAY IT IS
By Eduardo Escalante 

 

 

 

 

Some signs

 

 

 

 

The way it is

An invisible sound,
Beneath the wave,

He breaks it. old timber
does not survive to

the sound of footsteps.
The leaves fall from the trees

the day hangs
from their necks.

Flock of birds
Round in the afternoons,

Alerts to falling seed.
The dismembered trunk

betray inhabitants. Toes
submerge in the arteries of

The sunken roots in the earth.
They leave stunning prints.

Nothing paralyzed
Flow or crunch

attending to these life events
I will grasp them with my hand

– its urgent here
