Summer Of The Sparrow - Poem by Esteban Arellano
“Remember the sparrows,
the weight, the heaviness
hung on a thin piece of skin,
as though gravity was about to pull
their huge heads off.
Chingados hermano, why did we kill them.
It wasn’t right.
It wasn’t right.”
“Ismael, ” I whispered,
“it was you who killed them.”
My words fluttered in the treetops,
fled across the sky
rose above the clouds
and vanished into space.
“All the flies in the universe came, ” he said.
“It was as though the cosmos was a billion,
trillion dark flies and they collapsed on his head.
He was a f*cking black hole sucking in the light,
until all that was left was a black mass of pinché flies -
flies, ” he chuckled.
Snake slithered up my thigh
coiled around my b*lls and squeezed
then raised his head and struck.
“Why bro’, ” he asked. “Why did we do it? ”
I simply shrugged.
“Hermano, I was having a hell of a dream.
I was on a river bank, stuck in a mud hole.
There I was, Coyote, making love to earth,
my bushy tail frantically wagging.
Sh*t, I started laughing.
I laughed so hard I f*rted thunder,
shot lightening out my a*s and lit up the sky -
that’s when I woke, that’s when I heard them,
that’s when I smelled it.”
There was a strange poison in my veins
and I silently prayed, brother Snake leave,
but his fangs were deep in my heart
and my words were dead.
“It was everywhere, ” he continued.
“It was in the cottonfields,
in the chicken-coop, in the garden.
I stumbled towards the barn.
Don’t know if I walked like a stork
because of fear or la mota.
he was missing for three days.
All this time he was in his Chevy truck
behind the goddamned barn;
before, we’d always find him
with his acordeón and Lonestars,
and mom and dad would ground him for a week,
then he’d be in his room sniffing glue
- that little f*ck.”
There was a pause, then he said,
“Hermano, what we did
- It was wrong.”
I wanted to scream -
Ismael, it was you who killed them;
but Instead, I just nodded.
“Bro, ’ it was a black mass -
hanging on a sparrow’s neck,
All the flies in creation were there,
light was squeezed to the other side,
and his huge, dark head dangled from the window.
I thought any second it would be
A breeze fanned the windmill,
the shaft clanked, from the bushes
a bobwhite exploded and shredded space.
“Why did we do it bro? ’
We kept count till we lost track.
We hated those little f*ckers
- remember? ”
Snake, release me, I demanded,
but I had no authority,
and there were no words
only evening light
and the song
of the Sparrow.
