L’ Alderique Solitariu / Solitary Dialogue by Xe M. Sánchez

Xe M. Sánchez | Jun 26th, 2019 | poetry | No Comments


El políticu ye fiyu
de les sos pallabres,
comu los poetes.
Sicasí, un políticu
enxamás sedrá poeta
(falo d’un braeru poeta).
El poeta braeru nun nagua
por llindiar el rebañu.
El poeta braeru
nun promete futuru dalu.
El poeta braeru
ye’l so propiu enemigu.
El poeta braeru
sabe abondu que les sos pallabres
namái son l’alderique solitariu
d’una pantasma’l futuru.

English Translation

By Xe M. Sánchez

The politician is son
of his words,
like poets.
Even so, a politician
will never become a poet
(I speak about a true poet).
The true poet does not want
to tend the flock.
The true poet does not promise
any future.
The true poet
is his own enemy.
The true poet
knows well that his words
are only the solitary dialogue
of a future ghost.
