TS Hidalgo… Well Beyond the Outskirts of Your City

Well Beyond the Outskirts of Your City

If you go running to get to the middle of heat
(whilst Hamilton takes pole in Canada
and the constitution of stable governments
is discussed in your country),
either avoiding obstacles
after reaching our Land of Rabbits,
or you plan to go from Spain itself
e.g. to the Wall, or the rest of it
(… Deutschland,
Deutschland über alles… ),
surely you’ll wonder upon arrival
May I finally sit right here?;
money, power, influence,
bugged phones,
environmental protection,
a fluzo condenser,
but there is none of them here:
plain and simple,
you just don´t know
the Hospitality Sector has become a preferential matter.

TS Hidalgo… The Dog and the Arrow

 

The Dog and the Arrow

A dog
is my dog,
and he sees towards me an arrow:
it departs swiftly,
through the white smocks,
reaching the arrow,
and it avoids him,
and he avoids the arrow.
A dog
is my dog,
and chases an arrow:
needle of worthy end
to a good man,
body of peace
and cruel field
of horizontal extermination
(desired sword
by the
wild bull itself,
which is the voice of its master).
A dog
is my dog,
and he forgets an arrow,
watering with his warm verb
to the touch,
like a dropper,
a harsh plateau,
barren:
other lives,
human and my own.
My dog
tries to regret an arrow,
and the dog is a whole life,
and in no life
I turn into an arrow.
My friend
chased an arrow,
and the arrow is beautiful.
