Poem: Death, Fall Upon My Tamed Face

Selected Verses:

Death, Fall Upon My Tamed Face
(Translation of Muerte, Cae Sobre Mi Domada Frente)

Death, fall upon my tamed face.
Bring night’s darkness to my eyes;
and while they can still open and close,
bring me to my knees…

Silence my mortuary tears.
Proclaim for me an unstable life
that’s tortured by never-ending days
–a pernicious fortune badly suffered…
