Imago lacus

The picture above was taken by a dear friend, the American poet Debra Kang Dean (please do not use it without permission). I met Debra three years before, when I went to Walden to work with his late husband Brad, a great Thoreau scholar.

Un nocturno de Juan Marqués-en gau kantu bat

LAU atetik hiruren atzean
sofrimendua bizi da
gau gainean limoi xafla erdi bat
nagusia den bitartean.

Beti halaxe izan da
eta halaxe izango da beti.

Zatoz nirekin lo egitera.

Ipuin bat kantatuko dizut.

DETRÁS de tres de cada cuatro puertas
habita el sufrimiento
mientras sobre la noche reina
media rodaja de limón.

Siempre ha sido así
y así lo será siempre.

Ven a dormir conmigo.

Voy a cantarte un cuento.
