SI UNA NOCHE DE REPENTE UN VIAJERO
 
If you go running to get to the middle of heat
(whilst Hamilton takes pole in Canada
and the constitution of stable governments
is discussed in your country),
either avoiding obstacles
after reaching our Land of Rabbits,
or you plan to go from Spain itself
e.g. to the Wall, or the rest of it
(... Deutschland,
Deutschland über alles... ),
surely you'll wonder upon arrival
May I finally sit right here?;
money, power, influence,
bugged phones,
environmental protection,
a fluzo condenser,
but there is none of them here:
plain and simple,
you just don´t know
the Hospitality Sector has become a preferential matter.
 
 
YOUR GOLDEN HAIR, SULAMITH, YOUR HAIR ASH, MARGARETE
 
Heirs of innocent people
(or was it rather, perhaps, the innocent people,
The One and Only,
according to some book?)
they were invited, for years, to dig graves in the air
(death is a disguised-as-biorhythm clown),
mutant action:
chosen today as divine,
and the only owners of a shared land:
the false truth of not allowing reality
destroy the fictional world.
Designed by inherited deception,
they are giving birth to
a new human species:
the Democrats exterminators
(on the wall, it was written in lipstick Ask mother)
who, surrounded by blood,
cry with unbearable arrogance to be the God´s people:
it is already known that the Phoenicians died (all of them).
 
 
SPAIN. EVERYTHING UNDER THE SUN
 
Switch the short lights on,
to trace the curve.
Short, short,
to trace the curve,
and meanwhile,
the way thickens:
welcome to this valley
of tears and bullfighters.
Short, short,
and the curve is dangerous.
<<Think long-term,
to trace the curve>>,
Money kings
coolly uphold.
Thinking long-term:
you ought to build a forest,
plant plugs
and draw on it, for once,
runways
and launch ramps.

Spain:
spring,
summer,
autumn,
autumn,
autumn,
autumn,
autumn,
autumn,
autumn.
 
 
LETTER FROM THE SKY
 
by the brave gendarme Olaf,
who certified a lot
(and endorsed somewhat):
he was responsible for the evictions
of a Court,
and watched,
from this side of the Leviathan
(can we consider Spain
as a poorly finished concept,
no one correspondence,
artificial?),
simply squats
in a first stage,
and, after the credits
of The Shining,
a collapse of the system,
gushing,
ergo
the-big-bump:
several Greek tragedies
in the Museo del Barrio,
expedients of employment regulation,
defaults,
etc
etc
(that means
"and the rest"),
and, when you arrive at the highest level
of perversion of the system,
the pseudo State bankruptcy
after endorsement;
giving a toast to the sun
(the 1982 Soccer World Cup pesetas
had blue blood printed letters;
men losing a war,
on a TV program,
also),
and more layoffs;
he finally certified,
before the lead,
the last link of his downfall:
his own auction:
when you are surrounded by alligators to the neck
it is hard to remember
that the only thing you wanted
was to drain the swamp.
