WHO GIVES LIGHT

When you look at me
my eyes turn into keys,
the wall has secrets,
my fear has words, poems.

Only you make out of my memory
a fascinated traveller,
an incessant fire.

FUGUE IN LILAC
One should not write without reason, without knowing for whom.
The body remembers love to be like switching on a lamp.
Silence is temptation and promise.

ALEJANDRA PIZARNIK, (ARGENTINA, 1936-1972)
