Rafael del Castillo

(Colombia, 1962)

A sign

I walk on the battlefield
in the rubble looking for
a trace of life
a word gone astray in the air
the buzzing of a fly…

Like a starving animal

I anxiously scratch the earth
looking for a piece of life to take to the mouth
of a sign to savor squatting
on the stones
