The Red Violin Pope's Concert

¿Hay algo más que decir?

Béquer and Rock and Roll

I know it's only rock'n'roll.
But I like it.

You have also been twelve years old.
You also recognize
the trembling of the skin as you make your way.

You have felt the fire in your eyes
that experience intensity for the first time.

It's winter. My child-like fingers
push eagerly, freeing a poem.

Behind there is a young man with a goatee
and the endless eyes of a sensual dreamer.

Words scurry across my chest
like starving ants...

Suddenly, a direct hit
to my conscience,
just like when I listen to rock'n'roll.

The profoundest place of meaning.

Poetry is the opposite of death.

A sudden certainty of the unknown.

Maybe it's only rock'n'roll.

But I like it.

Me extravié en calles de la Condesa
entre letras, palabras y poemas.
Su afónica voz me guiaba
a través de recuerdos de Sabines y Benedetti.
Con esa deliciosa ronquera, la táctica
nos llevó, otra vez, al Centro Histórico.

Un beso, un hasta pronto, una mirada y una sonrisa.
Esa fue nuestra estrategia.
