Árbol de Diana

3

only the thirst
the silence
no encounters
beware of me my love
beware of the silent traveler in the desert
of the traveler with the empty glass
and of her shadow’s shadow

6

she strips in the paradise
of her memory
she disavows the savage destiny
of her visions
she’s afraid of not knowing how to name
what doesn’t exist

                           Alejandra Pizarnik (Argentina, 1936-1972)
translated by Andrea C.
