Babel

Puedes si es lo que quieres parler, Welt,
mais never try to listen muy esatto:
el Sprache non servit para nada
porque es un carnevale di parole,
y trocar de la langue is just el trucco
that we use para no ser comprendidos;
to stagger es el Zukünftig del fala.
Tenemos una tongue et es complesso
to make it comprender les autres tongues.
Let la musique chanter to the Unerhört
(la música, que doesn't have bandeira).
Y manhã we'll speak of other cosas.

from Fatiga de materiales (Valencia: Trashumantes, 2006).
