           REDEFINING WORLD
                        PALABRA INERTE
             Afuera está
             la espera interminable,
             la indiferencia y el polvo,
             el instante de haber muerto,
             la música delgada
             y la calle endurecida.
             Apenas mueve el horizonte
             esta oscuridad

             para volver al relámpago
             mudo de la angustia
             donde habitamos.
             Enemiga de la luz
             y del sonido
             aprisiono tu mensaje en mi garganta.
