Enrique Casaña Díaz (Ciudad Juárez/El Paso)

Estrellas Solitarias (Lone Stars)

Digital poem, experimental scanning

2020

Translation:

Halfway there, not just because the

frontier divides everyone

in half, but because everything 

was left pending.

Half of the head hurts

Half of the book read

Half of the groceries bought

Half of the tasks undone

Half days and half nights

a foot in this room and one in the other

one eye keeps on looking yesterday what

I’m going to do tomorrow

and the now stays empty

because it didn’t know where to go

I’m not sure if in the end

I’ll wanna go out.
