Fortuna nuevamente / Gracia revuelta

All the while they were talking the new morality
Her eyes explored me.
Ezra Pound, “The encounter”.

The rich son waits for his father to die
The poor just drink and cry
And me, I just don´t care at all
Lou Reed, “Men of good fortune”.

Acaso la limpia fortuna   no es
el músculo del caballo maduro
las grietas de las voces negras
o aquellas flores vírgenes
quemándose sin secretos
Acaso   no es todo gracia
lo que la noche nos revela
y el día disimula
