ONE POEM – María Paula Currás

I’m a mess
A profaner of tombs
Devoted to graves
         Except mine.

I’m great excess
And by that I mean I overflow
(take it as you will)

I condemn what I commit
I commit what I condemn

The sad song of guilt
The great joy of unactualized possibles
The aesthetics of feverish eyes
The iris of yours.

I’m a mess.
I’m currently in construction
And by that I mean
I don’t plan to resurface.
