Intentas sonreír
y un soplo amargo asoma
quieres decir amor y dices lejos
ternura y aparecen dientes
cansancio y saltan los tendones
Alguien dentro del pecho erige soledades
clavos
engaños
fosos
Alguien
hermano de tu muerte
te arrebata te apresa te desquicia
y tu indefenso
estas cartas le escribres.


Raúl Gómez Jattín.

"Style is the answer to everything.
A fresh way to approach a dull or dangerous thing
To do a dull thing with style is preferable to doing a dangerous thing without it
To do a dangerous thing with style is what I call art

Bullfighting can be an art
Boxing can be an art
Loving can be an art
Opening a can of sardines can be an art

Not many have style
Not many can keep style
I have seen dogs with more style than men,
although not many dogs have style.
Cats have it with abundance.

When Hemingway put his brains to the wall with a shotgun,
that was style.
Or sometimes people give you style
Joan of Arc had style
John the Baptist
Jesus
Socrates
Caesar
García Lorca.

I have met men in jail with style.
I have met more men in jail with style than men out of jail.
Style is the difference, a way of doing, a way of being done.
Six herons standing quietly in a pool of water,
or you, naked, walking out of the bathroom without seeing me."


C. B.
