When the voice makes its way

To use the voice to communicate love,
is not about putting words together,
or about playing the game of conventions,
or about inventing ingenious verses.
It is different.
It is seeing with naked eyes,
and in unison,
the tragedy and the truth of the beloved.
That awareness enters the body like an abrasive bullet,
and hits the existence.
And then,
with that same fire,
try to breathe,
dislocate the muscles of the mouth,
take off the petrified lips,
push the tongue that has been tied to the palate,
and remove a stone block from the throat,
a time sword,
a mass of earth and bones,
which is nothing more
than our own tragedy,
and our own truth.
