LA MUJER NEGRA Y LA NOCHE

(to nicholas guillen and nancy morejon)

IN THE STILL DARK NIGHT OF THE SOUL, LANGSTON

A VOICE WHISPERED TO ME:

"YO AMO SU SONRISA, SU CARNE OBSCURA,

SU CABEZA AFRICANA."

 

IN THE STILL DARK NIGHT OF THE SOUL, LANGSTON

MELD VOICES MELODIOUSLY:

"SURELY, I HAVE BEHAVED AS A CHILD,

...EVEN AS A WEANED CHILD."

 

IN THE STILL DARK NIGHT OF THE SOUL,

LANGSTON

TOPOS OF FORGETFULNESS,

AESTHETIC OF RESTRAINT,

SPEAK WITH SONOROUS SOLACE:

"YO TE DIRIA QUE LA NOCHE TIENE UN

ENCANTO MEDIEVAL."
