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.
