The Friday Cycle by Eugenia Andino

Dance with your eyes closed.
The smell, the music, the heat
Are all you need to see.

Baila con los ojos cerrados.
El olor, la música, el calor
son todo lo que necesitas ver.

I like your blond skin
I want your blond smile.
I’m looking for some blonde fun.

Me gusta tu rubia piel
Me atrae tu rubia sonrisa
quiero divertirme rubiamente

“How can we know the dancer from the dance?” (W. B. Yeats)
Do I dance better if you watch?

¿Cómo distinguir el baile de la bailarina?
¿Bailo mejor cuando me miras?

Dawn sets the sky on fire.
Day comes to stop all parties.
Survivors crawl out.

El amanecer quema el cielo.
Sobrevivimos a la noche.

Eugenia Andino, Seville, Spain
