Men’s Whims / Velenduries de los homes by Xe M. Sánchez

Xe M. Sánchez | Feb 7th, 2020 | poetry | No Comments


Sé abondu que mos xixilen.
Sé abondu que tienen llerza
a los poemes xabaces
ensin amu,
ensin preciu,
ensin futuru,
pero equivóquense d’enemigu.
Nun pescancien que’l borrín
nun ye d’esti mundiu
y que nun-y interesen
les velenduries de los homes.

English Translation

I know well that they are monitoring us.
I know well that they are afraid
of the wild poems
without a master,
without a price,
without a future,
but they are mistaken about their enemy.
They do not understand that the fog
is the is not from this world
and it is not interested
in men’s whims.
