Absolute happiness

Poetry by TS Hidalgo ∞ aRT BY /-\ 5 |-| 3 R

I tore the corners of an envelope

on the day of my childhood

something like exultant

and cathedrals, shields,

even masters in black

came out of it

(and this is something

I do not remember if explained

in TV commercials);

back to soccer:

also glue,

some media star,

the last signings

as a main topic,

as a closure:

a new brush painted suit

and the most expensive by far:

all the time in front of an album:

years, centuries,

a whole morning;

I tore, rimless, exultant,

the corners of an envelope,

outside of a court,

after divorce

and a tense wait.



<< A globe,


two globes,

three globes,

Earth is the globe where I live>>,

we the baby-boomers used to sing,

at an early age.

Subtle premonition of the housing bubble,


Ora pro nobis.


You, imputed


Here, in this second (or so)

world tourist destination,

after the storm comes the cat:

we are all very excited,

so we do not believe the Delorean

long time coming

(albeit to take you to the Prosecution);

we reiterate on emotion,

but this is pretty bleak

to think

your sister is going to open us the door

dressed as a maid;

seen from their perspective,

his hope is so serious

as our pain:

all of it finally originates

a sexless monster

that makes potions

in a travelling carnival.
