Miras
y te devuelvo la mirada.
Me observas con tus ojos.
Yo no tengo.
Aun carente de voz
respondo siempre
y mis labios se mueven en silencio.

El espejo.

Look
and I stare back.
I observe with your eyes.
I have no eyes.
Even voiceless
I always answer
and my lips move silently.

The mirror.

soy rey.
En el tuyo
soy esclavo.

I am a slave.

Hijo oscuro del padre mas brillante,
Ave sin alas se llegar al cielo.
Si te acercas a verme lloraras
porque al nacer empiezo a disolverme.

El humo.

Dark son of a brighter father,
Bird without wings to arrive in the sky.
If you come to see me, you will cry
because I start to dissolve at birth.

riddle3

Miento y digo la verdad.
Nadie me ve cuando ve
y me ve cuando no ve.
El que corre nunca corre
y el que habla jamas habla.

El sueño.

I lie and tell the truth.
Nobody sees me when he sees
and he sees me when he does not see.
The runner never runs
and the speaker never speaks.

The dream.
