the lip

shudder did ,an voting ,en
lodado ,el túmulo invisible
,under the paper where the
centipede sleeps ,or lurks ,if
distinction’s wheeled ,the sharp
bone ,sweated dry ,its kno
bby end ,or grounded snore
released ,a foggy poem dissa
pates ,tired but losing air. .  .   .     .
,weeds smoulder on the
berm the leg once pas
sed and the cuaderno ,sin
hojas ,árbol plano antañero
,espejo del be blank  hescrito
,falls to the gravel floor
,and remembers the awful lunch
Sobre el pupitre un tintero y un
cuaderno de escritura.
- Francisco Cuervo Martínez,
México: Libro de Lectura...tercer año..., 1940.
