A Short Passage

Lumbre

“Die Einschläge der Abrissbirne bilden zusammen mit der Stille des Nachmittags, dem Rumoren der Kuh durch den Schatten und den schubartigen Bruchstücken dieser asthmatischen Stimme den Körper einer Symphonie, prekär in ihrem Gleichgewicht, in ihrer zeitlichen Ausdehnung.”

— From “Lumbre” (Zurich, Bilgerverlag 2016), from Spanish to German by Luis Ruby
