el amor en los tiempos del cólera

i cast eyes on you until now

the earth turned to bring us closer

the earth turned to bring us closer,
it spun on itself and within us,
and finally joined us together in this dream
as written in the Symposium.
nights passed by, snowfalls and solstices;
time passed in minutes and millennia.
an ox cart that was on its way to Nineveh
arrived in Nebraska.
a rooster was singing some distance from the world,
in one of the thousand pre–lives of our fathers.
the earth was spinning with its music
carrying us on board;
it didn't stop turning a single moment
as if so much love, so much that's miraculous
was only an adagio written long ago
in the Symposium’s score.

la tierra giró para acercarnos

la tierra giró para acercarnos,
giró sobre sí misma y en nosotros,
hasta juntarnos por fin en este sueño,
como fue escrito en el Simposio.
pasaron noches, nieves y solsticios;
pasó el tiempo en minutos y milenios.
una carreta que iba para Nínive
llegó a Nebraska.
un gallo cantó lejos del mundo,
en la previda a menos mil de nuestros padres.
la tierra giró musicalmente
llevándonos a bordo;
no cesó de girar un solo instante,
como si tanto amor, tanto milagro
sólo fuera un adagio hace mucho ya escrito
entre las partituras del Simposio.

how many lives do we live?
how many times do we die?
they say we all lose 21 grams
at the exact moment of our death
and how much fits into 21 grams?
how much is lost?
when do we lose 21 grams?
how much goes with them?
how much is gained?
how much is gained?
twenty-one grams
the weight of a stack of five nickels
the weight of a hummingbird
a chocolate bar.
how much did 21 grams weigh
