    CRONOS

    En Santiago de Chile
    Los
    días
    son
    interminablemente
    largos:

    Varias eternidades en un día.

    Nos desplazamos a lomo de luma
    Como los vendedores de cochayuyo:
    Se bosteza. Se vuelve a bostezar.

    Sin embargo las semanas son cortas
    Los meses pasan a toda carrera
    Ylosañosparecequevolaran. (Report) Reply

    Ì`m chilean and, reading this I get the feeling that Parra's work hasn't been showned to reforce the value it does have.
    I suggest a revision of his work and the translation of some of his wooks, or at least one, 'Poemas y Antopoemas', as a whole so the searcher gets a notion of his stetic, value and ruptures wuithin the time of the publications.
    He is our Ezra Pound. (Report) Reply
