we are seen by the world / what must be seen
‘oh dirty feet blood-clotter / oh grease monkey clod-hopper / oh cloud-devourer spit’
‘you alone sit down at that table / facing the houses you tried to inhabit’
Translated from the Galician by Erín Moure.
‘I wanted to go for a walk, but I was afraid / of missing a phone call.’
‘that huge cobalt industrial complex eye / how can anything be that big’
