Un beso

23 02 2008


Ayer te besé en los labios.
Te besé en los labios. Densos,
rojos. Fue un beso tan corto
que duró más que un relámpago,
que un milagro, más.
El tiempo
después de dártelo
no lo quise para nada
ya, para nada
lo había querido antes.
Se empezó, se acabó en él.

Hoy estoy besando un beso;
estoy solo con mis labios.
Los pongo
no en tu boca, no, ya no
-¿adónde se me ha escapado?-.
Los pongo
en el beso que te di
ayer, en las bocas juntas
del beso que se besaron.
Y dura este beso más
que el silencio, que la luz.
Porque ya no es una carne
ni una boca lo que beso,
que se escapa, que me huye.
Te estoy besando más lejos.

-Pedro Salinas

Yesterday I kissed you on the lips.
I kissed you on the lips. Dense lips,
red lips. It was such a short kiss
that it lasted longer than a lightening bolt,
longer than a miracle, longer.
I didn’t want time
at all anymore
after giving it to you,
I didn’t want
it at all before.
It started, it ended with it.

Today I am kissing a kiss;
I am alone with my lips.
I don’t put them
On your mouth, no, not anymore
-where has it escaped me?
I put them
on the kiss that I gave you
yesterday, in our mouths joined
on the kiss which they kissed.
And this kiss lasts longer
than silence, longer than light.
Because now it is not flesh
or a mouth that I kiss,
that escapes me, that flees me.
I am kissing you even further.

Don’t be kissing Muslim women, it could cause problems. The painting looks Muslim like with lipstick.

Also what do you think about or know about Papa Nabor Cardenas de Michoacan since you like these quasi schismatic groups.
