Another one from the Lola Velasco/Amalia Iglesias collaboration:

En el borde de la conciencia,
mi voluntad
se apaga
antes de tiempo.

En su letargo rupestre,
la madriguera precaria
de las estaciones.

***

On the edge of consciousness,
my will
gives out
before it should.

In its cave-bound lethargy,
in the precarious den
of the seasons.

When I read this poetry I imagine a series of woodblock prints, one for each stanza of the poem. A comic-book rhythm, with each stanza being a panel.
