#poesíacontraelmuro / #poetryvsthewall / #poésievsmur: Louise Wallace, Nueva Zelanda



En Círculo de poesía, Valparaíso México y el Encuentro Internacional de Poesía Ciudad de México hemos convocado a una acción global de resistencia para contrarrestar los impunes ataques a todas las libertades por parte del tirano estadounidense Donald Trump, poetas de todos los continentes nos envían sus poemas para construir un espacio de entendimiento entre los pueblos del mundo a través de la poesía.

 

 

 

Everything you can’t know

 

let’s work backwards from here

she says her hands blossoming out

like a fast-moving vine her eyes

a question she’s afraid to ask

 

*

 

scream pointing the scream

into a centered place but the scream

will run off into the night and wake

all the neighbours but just

keep screaming the neighbours

won’t get up to check anyway

outside the world is a thick

darkness

 

*

 

all day long people tell you

how useless you are teachers

statistics the news it’s only

so long before it gets

into your blood you will pass it

to your children

 

*

 

insert everything you know

from TV here and everything

you can’t know

because your childhood

was nothing like it
