i heard of a man

sé de un hombre que dice
las palabras con tal belleza
que con sólo enunciar su nombre
se le otorgan mujeres.

si ahora estoy callado junto a ti
y el silencio florece
como un tumor en nuestros labios
es porque escucho a un hombre subir las escaleras
y atrás de nuestra puerta limpiarse la garganta.

  1. el poema de cohen:

    I heard of a man
    who says words so beautifully
    that if he only speaks their name
    women give themselves to him.

    If I am dumb beside your body
    while silence blossoms like tumors on our lips
    it is because I hear a man climb stairs and clear his throat outside the door.
