KATIA CHIARI (Panama, 1969)

Photo dawning

From now on we shall call commonplaces what has been said
by others that are not me.

This the photo   of a commonplace in the history of poetry.

Dawning   has no synonym.

To owe my silence to others’   evocations,   when vthe instant
alights
eternal
in the meeting   of earth and sun and   my body   hangs from a cup
of
coffee,
I cannot. It is   urgent for me to tell   you that the I that
inhabits
me
does not understand why someone sleeps   while the miracle   is repeated.
I need
to tell you,   it is not the   mark of a new journey,   not the
prolongation of
the calendar,   it is gift,   origin,   ecstasy,   silence.   Diminutive
I,
Awaken!
The rain jokes   from time to time.   There is no moment more
orange nor
an exacter clock.   It dawned in my eyes.    Another I
to
tell about it.
A fortunate  commonplace    for us,   the synonyms of
so many
more.

Translation by Nicolás Suescún
