"Father Death Blues" por Allen Ginsberg

lunes, diciembre 31, 2007

Hey Father Death, I'm flying home
Hey poor man, you're all alone
Hey old daddy, I know where I'm going

Father Death, Don't cry any more
Mama's there, underneath the floor
Brother Death, please mind the store

Old Aunty Death Don't hide your bones
Old Uncle Death I hear your groans
O Sister Death how sweet your moans

O Children Deaths go breathe your breaths
Sobbing breasts'll ease your Deaths
Pain is gone, tears take the rest

Genius Death your art is done
Lover Death your body's gone
Father Death I'm coming home

Guru Death your words are true
Teacher Death I do thank you
For inspiring me to sing this Blues

Buddha Death, I wake with you
Dharma Death, your mind is new
Sangha Death, we'll work it through

Suffering is what was born
Ignorance made me forlorn
Tearful truths I cannot scorn

Father Breath once more farewell
Birth you gave was no thing ill
My heart is still, as time will tell.

Que 2008 te depare 366 oportunidades placenteras. Espero hayas invertido bien este primer días, porque de no ser así, has desperdiciado uno... Aunque con Ginsberg creo que no lo has desperdiciado nada... Bien por eso!!

Desde la madrugada calurosa porteña, saludos, besos y abrazos.
