SAFARI

Hay muchas junglas,
junglas en las que el juego se llama safari
y donde podés ser cazado,
junglas verdes, oscuras, e impenetrables,
hay junglas de cemento y ladrillos,
junglas humanas, millones de personas hablando un idioma que yo no entiendo,
junglas de silencio,
junglas de desentendimiento,
junglas de cables y chips y circuitos y palabras, que no sabemos el significado,
junglas en nuestra propia mente,
hay junglas en las que no te perdés,
solamente morís,
junglas de sábanas, de besos, de caricias, de abrazos...
y en esta jungla uno siempre quiere ser la victima.

There are many jungles,
jungles where the game is called safari
and where you can be hunted,
green jungles, dark, and impenetrable,
there are jungles of concrete and bricks,
human jungles, millions people speaking a language I do not understand,
jungles of silence,
jungles of misunderstanding,
jungle of wires and chips and circuits and words, we do not know the meaning,
jungles in our own minds,
there are jungles in which you do not miss
you only die,
jungles of sheets, kisses, caresses, hugs
and in this jungle, you always want to be the victim.

La vida misma es una jungla, y nosotros, dependiendo del papel que nos toca jugar, somos cazadores o presas.... glup... me puse profundo. :(

Love the poem and illustration. Really like those little boxes. I've been saving some too for a future, unknown art project.

Hay junglas hechas para perderse y dejarnos encontrar.
Y si no existen, hay que inventarlas.
