Poem: Plea to the Water

Reveal your secret to us, water!

Tell us about the fine moss
that borders your margins;
about those dreams of ours
that navigated your liquids;
about all the words of the dead
and all the words of the children.

But tell us, most of all,
why was our life wrecked
and lies now submerged
in your unhurried flow of mirrors?
Why is the anguished spasm
of our screams now settled in your felt?

Ernesto Vasquez, M.D.
