Solidaridad
Posted in Poetry

“Solidarity”

Solidaridad

Desolado en la puta máquina de escribir,
no deleito los sonidos de África en libertad
que tolera la espiritualidad del sufrimiento.

Lo puede soportar al pensar en el grito
con repercusiones de la vida que traspasa
el lamento y la pobreza de un continente.

Descubriendo figuras en paredes
para sobrevivir la vida que añoramos,
sin ver más allá de las narices.

Olvidamos la justicia del pensamiento
que constantemente nos libera
de la busca de su libertad.

Juan Carlos Valdés
