In the PROFILE Diary Culture Supplement We offer every week “Narcolepsy – Coordinates for an approach to poetry”, and the chosen one on this occasion is “Reflections of change”, by Argentine Marisa Russo:
I have not learned the lección del invierno.
The voice of Central Park divides the buildings.
Reclaims the mirada de mi madre
who is sad in his rodillas because he did not receive my visit.
In the health of the decorator of the antique shop.
I stopped to see the typewriter
while the chica del dial was harassed by her jefe.
I have been very insensitive,
soy la nieve en la rutina de almanacs.
Without embargo, in the last snowfall a vagabond
I tended to my hand on Madison Avenue.
until the cold finds
its exit on the thresholds of the poem.
