Amparo Osorio

OUTDOORS

Rain:
anoint my skin
wash my eyes.

Night opens
for you.

My roaming.
My endless wandering off
haunts me.

What voices
of what skies
do you bring to me?

What god
cries
that I don’t hear?

INTEMPERIE

INTEMPERIE

Lluvia:
unge mi piel
lava mis ojos.

Se abre mi noche
para ti.

Mi enrancia.
Mi infinito extravío
me persigue.

¿Qué voces
de qué cielos
me traes?

¿Qué dios
llora
y no escucho?
