Cortázar | A Poem by Alberto Quero

I just wrote life, che.
I wrote it crudely
to its minute details,
with its repetitions and its spirals;
I wrote the cities and love,
I wrote the helplessness and the friends
I wrote silence and hope
I just wrote life, che:
It is you, who reads
(life, not me)
it is you who has to believe
that it is easy to live,
that it does not hurt us.

From Alberto’s award-winning poetry book, “Los Que Vinieron,” published in Spanish by Negro Sobre Blanco Editions. Caracas, Venezuela, 2014.
