Sánchez Robayna Translation

“The White Street”

Your steps have brought you to the edges,

to an open place, an empty street

in the immemorial eyes of a dream.

It is a white street. Between high walls

the sky spills out, and there’s no longer anyone

in the muteness of the air. In the silence,


all shall be fulfilled.

And you flow through the dream, through the etched light.

Words grow quiet, you walk along the white street.
