Water Jump Shot Burger Love

If some consider life a game
then what sport is it?

Basketball--
with it's jump-shot opportunities?
It's not football
because we can't change a play
after reviewing it,
we can only learn from it.
It might be soccer
because sometimes we're alone
protecting our goal.
Tennis has the term love
to explain when the opponents
are zero zero.
So, why is that the opposite in the game of life?

Wouldn't it be great if life
came with water breaks
or towel boys
or with fans who still root
for you even when you strike out?

Remember when the coach took you out
for pizza or a burger after a game
even if you lost?

Maybe life isn't a sport.
Maybe it's exercising
or running your own marathon
hoping to find a partner
to keep the pace with.

Sobre cómo surge el espanto

El cuerpo está cansado
y la noche viola la vista
acostumbrada a la costumbre
de los colores en un vaso
sin derrame o torcedura
en la claridad del aire.
La cama es un músculo enorme
que nos consume cada instante.
El espanto es una habitación compartida
por el silencio y el mundo,
donde la mirada es capaz de ver dedos
trepando las paredes
después del sacrificio.
Surge el espanto en los fieles a la vida
que se persignan culpas en el cuerpo.
Los otros, pensamos en el día
La jornada, el trabajo.
Nos volteamos al espanto
de comenzar el día.
