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.

Poematxo bat Elizabeth Macklin-entzat


NEW YORK-EN EGIN DITZAKEZUN HAMAIKA GAUZA


New Yorken gauzarik berezienak
egiten ditu jendeak

gosaldu bazkaldu eta afaldu
urteko egun guztietan

seme-alabarik eduki ala
inoiz ez edukitzea

izarrak batzuetan ikustea
literal-literalean

eta musika entzun dezakete
musika! sinestezina

gauza bitxiak gauza ergelak
harrigarriak benetan

etxea bota etxea eraiki
pare bat hilabetetan

Saramago edo Atxaga leitu
jatetxe txinatarrean

poema baten usaina hartu
ingelesera eraman

abioiak metalezko habiara
itzultzen diren moduan.
