SEPARADOS/SEPARATED (IF)

Dijimos que el próximo año estaremos separados.
Ya estoy cansado de tus pies fríos,
de que me pidas que te rasque la espalda...
Vos te cansaste de mis dos almohadas,
de mi montaña de libros en la mesa de luz,
y yo ya no soporto tus agujas en la cama.

El año que viene estaremos separados.

Yo te despertaré a las 9 y media, ¿está bien?
preparo tu desayuno,
comemos juntos,
trabajamos juntos,
a las 10 de la noche me das un beso y nos decimos hasta mañana...
¿Pero, quién se quedará con los corazones durante la noche?
No lo había pensado,
un rato vos, un rato yo,
una noche yo, una noche vos,
¿En una cajita?
¿En una lata de caramelos?
¿No tendrán frío en invierno?

El año que viene estaremos separados
pero dejemos que nuestros corazones
sigan dándose calor juntos.


We said that next year we will be separated.
I'm tired of your cold feet,
that you ask me to scratch your back...
You got tired of my two pillows,
of my mountain of books on the bedside table,
and I can not stand your needles in bed.

Next year we will be separated.

I wake you up at half past 9, right?
I prepare your breakfast,
we eat together,
work together,
at 10 pm you give me a kiss and tell ourselves until tomorrow...
But who will keep the hearts at night?
I had not thought,
a while you, a while I,
one night I, one night you,
In a box?
A candy's tin?
Will not be cold in winter?

Next year we shall be separated
but let our hearts,
continue giving heat together.

Que lindo! y triste tambien, como la vida siempre es. Llena de belleza y perdida. Me encanta tu estilo de dibujar. Espero ver mas en el futuro.

Good work as usual Roberto...continuation of this love theme is very strong in your artwork at the moment. I hope you don't miss being separated from the cold feet too much! You need a warm cat in your bed!!

I like this drawing very much. Great colors and composition, and a sweet interpretation of the topic. :)

MiKa Art dijo...

Wow, this is complicated. But very provocative illustration as usual!!

Sasa dijo...

Great perspective & colors! This has lovely holiday mood, like box of chocolate... (I think I might start studying Spanish by reading your poems, good idea?)

(Beijing is not that much of a bicycle city anymore. There are cars everywhere, no room for cycling. But I would say there are at least 20 million bicycles because I have bought my 3rd one, more than one per person.)

Sasa dijo...

Back to bicycles... 9 Million Bicycles... what a sweet music video! (I must admit I'm bit uncultured when it comes to music, didn't know that song though might have heard its name).

Sasa dijo...

Oh, Chinese New Year is great: one week or more of continuous fireworks, never seen anything like it before coming to China. But horrible suffering for those who cant stand loud noises or have trouble sleeping. 'Western New Year' is not really a celebration here.

I do not know anything about color, composition or even about textures. What does it all mean?
Maybe some hearts are blue, or black or transparent , smooth or rough , who cares...

But we have to care about what hearts feel and how how it responds to all stimuli.....is it not most important ?



But I know who keeps the hearts in soft, velvet boxes at night .....

(Blogger denied 2 times my comment !!!!!

Your dog is very "linda" !!
I usually have a very big problem when I walk: I see each stones, a piece of wood, in the stump, in the clouds, in the pool, in the mud, in water a potential art piece. It is very exhausting . Than I come home and I realize I did not noticed how landscape looked like ..:(

Denise Scaramai dijo...

Pues no es muy difficil sentarme aqui en el internet (como mi casa!! pues mejor pagado!!) Y Tu?

Rod MacGregor dijo...

Roberto..I said I couldn't leave a comment on your wooden dog and did not know why...Art is Jokken said he did know why! I said: I still don't know why yhou can't!

ESPERANZA dijo...

Oh noooooo!!!! que no sean los corazones hechos con hilitos de colores y olor a trementina, bajale un poquito al arrume de libros y yo le digo a mi amiga que no asuma que tus dos almohadas son alfileteros....ohhhhh nooooooo!!!!

Quise hablarte del perrito pero no me permitio....bueno en fin...esta genial!!!! y yo que a las piedras les encuentro formas de animales...ahora voy por los maderos!!!

Ted Blackman dijo...

Yes, Rod is right. I cannot leave a dogwood post.

But he is a perfect dog; he does not bite nor bark too much, and has no vet bills!

Melissa Mackie dijo...

Beautiful and so sad at the same time Roberto..... Love the poetry and the heart popped away in a box.......

art is jok(k)e(n) dijo...

Hi R!
Your "silly" dog has a lot of admirers ! I told you, Leave him on a leash or he runs away!


Greetings to swallows. Did you count them if all of them arrived?

Sasa dijo...

Thanks for introducing Chantal Montellier. I wasn't familiar with her though might have read something from her. I am a big fan of graphic novels but unfortunately here in China it is really hard to get hands on them. They just have manga and their own cartoons, which are... shit... (Sorry but bad drawing and boring storylines.. :-P)

Sasa dijo...

Cute dog!!!! Very attentive!

PILAR dijo...

Uffff!!! Roberto me has hecho sufrir un poquillo y subir mi tensión....pensé que la historia acababa mal....uffffff!!!!! menos mal que los corazones sigan dándose calor juntos. Un besazo con abrazo.

Ana dijo...

linda esta entrada y la del perro también :)
las cosas van ahí, afortunadamente tranquilas...creo que en medio de esto vamos aprendiendo a valorar cada día, disfrutar los momentos en los que se está bien es lo más cercano a la felicidad.
Gracias por la visita, una muy muy buena semana para tí también!!

Carla dijo...

I love your writing (and of course your art) Roberto! Thanks for your visit and hope you have a lovely reunion with your daughter. She will tell you how bad the weather is here at the moment! Have a good week :)

Andrew Finnie dijo...

Hello Roberto, well I am early for the next one, the cute dog, yet I cannot comment, that's fine I can comment here. Well with regards to the grid and the hearts in the box, esceher on escher, but refreshingly so. It's a beautiful work, conjours up all sorts of emotional linkages, cards, romance even alice in wonderland, but we also sense that the hearts, though intertwined, are confined, and each might be unique, yes is replicated in a never ending grid that breaks past the confinements of the picture planes.

Of course, these are only what it suggests, and suggestion has far more beauty than a plain statement, eh?

Sorry you couldn't comment the other day, and then you could. I appreciate you visiting twice and picking out a favourite. Hope your day is grande and full of sweet smelling flowers.

luna-2008 dijo...

guau!!! unas lineas que hablan de un amor verdadero sin duda, muy bello, saludos y felices fiestas.

Amanda Dilworth dijo...

Great illustration. Love the idea of this, with all those hearts in their separate boxes.

Y Otros Paisajes.. dijo...

Preciosa entrada..
un abrazo!

Shirley dijo...

Roberto!! You are much too generous..thank you for your kind words! I LOVE your pup above for you are a most creative soul. There is heart in this character and I love the shape of his mouth as if he were saying, "arrrrrooooo!" : ) Hope you are well!

marian dijo...

Es complicado pensar,pueden estallar bombas atomicas al lado,yo por eso nunca lo hago ( ta bueno el efecto)

Wanda Torres dijo...

Beeello! Lo de los pies frios y las muchas almohadas me hizo identificarme con el poema inmediatamente! Y ademas, excelente ilustracion! La semana que viene tratare de contactarte por email para que me cuentes tus secretos de ceramica. E ire a tu expo! No fui inmediatamente porque esta semana a sido una locura pero te prometo ir y contarte, si es que alguien no lo ha hecho ya.
un abrazo,
Wanda

illustration poetry dijo...

hi stopping by to say happy weekend!

i like your BIR BINTANG shirt, hahah, a shirt for the beer lovers from Bali :D

sasa dijo...

I like Enki Bilal too. And I do like Japanese manga but I don't follow it actively. But Chinese cartoons are just crap - though they might be anthropologically interesting sometimes...
Have a great weekend Roberto!!
