There is a name that I drink
Half solar alcohol, half secret water
There's a name that I scream
Mixed in the bustle of the other names.
There is a name that I caress
piece of forest, warm and persistent
There is a name that is river, sweet arrow and sweat
The Irreducible Feast.
Millions of heavy glances thin the climate
And attack your fragile look of love.
The smell of a helpless, movable queen
Strangles the perfume that stirs your heart
The hunger of so many who forgot their own signs of light
Devour the flame
Which feeds only you .
In you there is a sweetness soaked with crime;
In the middle of the aridity, you hide a garden.
While outside only the terrified silence is breathed
There's music in your head, spinning in your veins.
Your love is an irreducible feast
In the middle of the massacre.
You Once Followed the trail of the Packs.
You once followed the course of the packs
By that smell of furrows
Which spilled over the crowd.
You learned to bite
And tear like the others.
Tore the canopy
To offer you a horror
You killed your own in the dark.
You were part
Of the weakness that you devoured.
