Breathing-in, minnesota [a poem: now in spanish and english] - poetry
In early fall, in Minnesota, the rain falls, falls, In buckets, buckets and more buckets-: drops Likened to music from its many streams-land Of ten-thousand lakes; moistened gravel, gravel Everywhere?
Grandpa sits on the porch-daydreaming of, of Something, i don't know coldness about the corner-; As the flies disappear, with the mosquitoes? Leaves will soon vanish, dark will come early
Maybe he's assessment about summer: miles and miles And miles and miles of cornfields; his childhood now Long gone, he hums a hymn, a song; looking at the Metal-piped fence, he made, with three poles, on the Embankment, important up the steps to the porch; It's worn-out like him.
The winds in Minnesota smell fresh, fresh from all The foliage, there's a lot of it. The eighty-three Year old man looks about, on his screened in Porch -fetches his pipe, light it up, sucks in a Drag, pushes out some smoke: it drifts and drifts In the corners of the house
"Ah!" he says-proud of his life events-I say to Myself (I'm but ten): "No doubt He's by now lived this?"
There are many stories he wants to tell, but first he Wants to smell the fresh air, the burning of autumn Leaves-He, never anticipated to have lived this long of A life, I believe, the old bear, came from Russia in 1916; He acknowledged life-adjusted to it
He hears the sparrows, their down flapping, faintly Soiled feathers, flapping, cover every inch of their Bodies- He notices frost on the adjacent tree. It seems to Him, the sun is full of life off of the ground, he gets bits And pieces of it on his face, it warms it, somehow, Thaws it out?
He's breathing in, frail like,-like appraisal Faulkner, gradually Does it, a ting uneasy. He never left Minnesota once, once He at home back home from WWI (1918), "?no need to," he Says-he's happy? The fields are clean, animals in the barns; in the city, People in receipt of haircuts-everything conclusion down. Winter is now-it came last night, a Minnesota winter Is like no other. He just woke up, his bones chilled. The Wind blows, now it whistles, no flora to stop its echoes.
"There are only a few left like me," he murmurs. The Flavor of chill he likes; warm biscuits, hot coffee, a Smoke from a pipe or cigar. Black kindling that were Green a few months ago-: it's 10-below zero.
He sees the beauty of Minnesota in a glance here and There-It makes his brain swim with life; it is character at its Finest!. . .

Respirando en, Minnesota [un poema]
Al comienzo del Otoño, en Minnesota, la lluvia cae, cae, En cubos, cubos Y más cubos-: gotas Comparadas con la música de sus muchos arroyuelos de Diez mil lagos; grava humedecida, grava por todas partes?
El abuelo se sienta sobre el pórtico, soñando despierto, de Algo, quizás el invierno rondando la esquina-; mientras las moscas desaparecen, con los mosquitos?Las hojas in half a shake desaparecerán, las sombras vendrán temprano
Tal vez él esta pensando en el verano: millas y millas y millas y millas de maizales; Su niñez ahora, hace mucho tiempo ida, él tararea un himno, una canción; mirando
La valla metálica-entubada, que él hizo, con tres postes, sobre el Terraplén, Conduciendo los pasos hacia el pórtico; Esto esta desgastado como él.
Los vientos en Minnesota huelen fresco, mural por todo el follaje, hay Mucho de ello. El anciano de ochenta y tres años mira alrededor, sobre su protección En el Doorway - trayendo su pipa, encendiéndolo, aspiran una Rastra, eliminando el humo: esto va a la deriva y llega las esquinas de la casa
¡" Ah!" Él dice - orgulloso de los acontecimientos de su vida- me digo a mi mismo (pero yo sólo de diez): Sin duda "¿Él ya vivió esto?"
Hay muchas historias que él quiere contar, pero primero, él quiere oler el aire fresco, la burning de Hojas de otoño - Él, nunca tuvo la intención de haber vivido esto a lo largo de una vida, Yo creo, el viejo oso, vino de Rusia en 1916; Él aceptó la vida- adaptado a ello.
Él oye los gorriones, su batir de plumas, plumas apenas Manchadas, batir, cubriendo cada pulgada de sus Cuerpos - Él nota la helada sobre el árbol cercano. Le parece, el sol esta saltando en el campo, él consigue añicos y pedazos de ello sobre su cara, esto calienta, de algún modo, Lo deshiela hacia fuera?
Él esta respirando, frágil como, - como leyendo Faulkner, despacio hace esto, un tintineo difícil. Él nunca dejó Minnesota alguna vez, una vez que Él llegó a casa de WWI (1918), "?ninguna necesidad", él dice - que el es feliz?. los campos son limpios, los animales en los graneros; en la ciudad, la gente que consigue cortes de pelo - todo cerrando abajo. El invierno esta ahora - llegó anoche, un invierno del Minnesota no Se parece a ningún otro. Justo cuando el se despertó, sus huesos enfriados. El Viento sopla, ahora esto silba, ningún follaje para parar sus ecos.
"Hay sólo unos pocos dejados como yo " murmura él. El Sabor del invierno le gusta; bizcochos calientes, café caliente, fumar de una pipa o cigarro. Las ramas negras que eran Verdes hace unos meses-: esto es 10 bajo cero.
Él ve la belleza de Minnesota en un vistazo aquí y Allí - Esto hace a su cerebro nadar con la vida; ¡esto es la naturaleza en su fineza!. . .

Man Unbowed [A poem]
Man UnbowedUnbowed by sin, the world of man, stands Upon his feet he gapes into the sky, The lack of concern of centuries inside his eyes, And in his heart the curse of the old world. Who made him dead to love and God? A thing that breathes only for wants and needs, With a lack of emotion, a brother to the fox? Who tightened and hard-pressed up his serrated brow? (To make him look so grand, so proud-so tall.

Three Poems and Paradise Lost [One for Hell, One for Heaven one for an Inca King]
The Fast-moving water of HellHell's furnace- Likened to a chimney Vomits her torrents Of flames- Into the air Through earths crust And the earth's trembles-!Agitated, she projects A thick curtain of smoke To heat the feet of those Who provoke her every wish. Like molten iron She waits for the soul(the moment) Then molds, into her enclosure Human serpents? Out of savage flesh!No storm, no struggle No eruption, no typhoon, Just a terrible phenomenon, Hell is adept of producing; And upon death, Back into the Abyss They melt!.

The Man Who Could Not Say Sorry For His Sins
Sorry would be a start.Though you cant take back your mistakes, and you cant clear up time, you'd think there would be remorse, for such a self allocation crime, to send others out to die, to pay the blood price you have decreed, when its decently pomposity and posing, all about conceit and greed, to assured a perceived niche in history, glowing down the years, is the coverage of your ambition, is the puny limit of your fears, when those you have sent to die, believing implicitly in you, leave relatives at the back who see, that nobody you said was true, there is no brain wave now for those, whose add up to you dont count, they are yesterdays forgotten, though daily they still mount, no brain wave of resignation, no confession to those left behind, just on with the ego, fast advance from those times, as if naught ever happened, as if your lies are quite ok, as if now is what to focus on, and then was an added day, lost back in the mists of time, obscured by clouds half seen, not an disrespect to the living, not impeachable and obscene, you may want to move on now, and disregard your past infamy, but you ought to be tried for treason, and caged for blasphemy.
Ed Gallagher Dec. 11, 1907 - Sept.

An Old Wood Pile [a poem with notes]
Old skin, once held tight Against her skeleton- Rose no more, just draped Loosely over unpadded flesh; Un-tightened muscles, and tissue, Lost its courage, no-fortitude-, Gone are the days and years That stood adjacent to the Indomitable elements; The skeleton, now a landmark Hidden under flesh and blood Guts and moral fiber, backbone? Collapsed from drudgery Time, time: cascading inside-. Bones now departure impressions Accepting fate Like flawed silver!.
