Poesía Vertical 9 por Roberto Juarroz

(One of my favorite poems of all time.)


Pienso que en este momento
tal vez nadie en el universo piensa en mí,
que solo yo me pienso,
y si ahora muriese,
nadie, ni yo, me pensaría.
Y aquí empieza el abismo,
como cuando me duermo.
Soy mi propio sostén y me lo quito.
Contribuyo a tapizar de ausencia todo.
Tal vez sea por esto
que pensar en un hombre
se parece a salvarlo.
