Marleny Mejía Jaramillo

(Colombia, 1975)

The sight of the radiance
Will initiate the hecatomb.

As the Moorish prophet predicted
The clock will stop
And you will crawl through the land.

The October breeze
Will scatter its opium
On your republic of dreams

Frogs
Will drink your blood.
They will ovulate
And will give birth new inhabitants.

The code will be deciphered.

The clouds slashed by the sun
Will carry the red rain till the south,
Where the larva will devour
The dead leaves of autumn.

Translated by Constante Lardas.
