Jorge Luis Borges "1964"


Ya no es mágico el mundo. Te han dejado.
Ya no compartirás la clara luna
ni los lentos jardines. Ya no hay una
luna que no sea espejo del pasado,

cristal de soledad, sol de agonías.
Adiós las mutuas manos y las sienes
que acercaba el amor. Hoy sólo tienes
la fiel memoria y los desiertos días.

Nadie pierde (repites vanamente)
sino lo que no tiene y no ha tenido
nunca, pero no basta ser valiente

para aprender el arte del olvido.
Un símbolo, una rosa, te desgarra
y te puede matar una guitarra.


Ya no seré feliz. Tal vez no importa.
Hay tantas otras cosas en el mundo;
un instante cualquiera es más profundo
y diverso que el mar. La vida es corta

y aunque las horas son tan largas, una
oscura maravilla nos acecha,
la muerte, ese otro mar, esa otra flecha
que nos libra del sol y de la luna

y del amor. La dicha que me diste
y me quitaste debe ser borrada;
lo que era todo tiene que ser nada.

Sólo que me queda el goce de estar triste,
esa vana costumbre que me inclina
al Sur, a cierta puerta, a cierta esquina.

What is it inside our heads
That makes us do the opposite,
Makes us do the opposite
Of what's right for us.
'Cause everything be great,
And everything be good,
If everybody gave,

We all live in a house on fire, no fire department to call; no way out, just the upstairs window to look out of while the fire burns the house down with you trapped, locked in it.

Todos vivimos en una casa en llamas, sin bomberos a los que llamar; sin salida, sólo la ventana del piso de arriba para mirar hacía afuera mientras el fuego consume la casa contigo dentro, atrapado.


There are no ‘good’ or ‘bad’ people. Some are a little better or a little worse but all are activated more by misunderstanding than malice. A blindness to what is going on in each other’s hearts.

No hay "buenas" o "malas" personas. Algunos son un poco mejor o un poco peor pero todos son activados más por mal entendimiento que malicia. Una ceguera hacía lo que está pasando en los corazones de los demás.

Amy Winehouse - Back To Black (2006)

Amy Winehouse está muerta.

We only said goodbye with words
I died a hundred times
You go back to her

It's never over, my kingdom for a kiss upon her shoulder

It's never over, all my blood for the sweetness of her laughter

Frank O'Hara - Animals (1950)

Have you forgotten what we were like then
when we were still first rate
and the day came fat with an apple in its mouth

it's no use worrying about Time
but we did have a few tricks up our sleeves
and turned some sharp corners

the whole pasture looked like our meal
we didn't need speedometers
we could manage cocktails out of ice and water

I wouldn't want to be faster
or greener than now if you were with me O you
were the best of all my days

I'm not what's missing from your life now

Before you do as the devil pleases
And give up the thing you love
