I admit that I see the light
in the end of the barrel
and I know it is real.
Between the full ash can and the broken bottle,
I hear the sound of something approaching.
I wonder if Cesar Vallejo heard that, I mean
in his final hour?
And what about Brodsky?
I do not know.
All of this is less then zero,
right, Brecht?
You were good
for all of us.
As the curtains close slowly,
I hear the laugh of someone.
