Montrealense sobre Balcon Malagueno

 

 

Malaga in March/April 2020

 

 

 

At the eight,

 

my neighbours can’t wait

 

to congregate

 

on their balconies

 

and celebrate their destinies

 

as they grieve the gone

 

and try to look beyond.

 

 

The deaths call into question our essence

 

and will for generations still to come

 

the departed are etched into our conscience

 

too many of us have had little or none.

 

 

Meanwhile on our balconies we dance together from afar

 

like after victory in a war

 

applauding all those whose star

 

put them on the frontline

 

saluting their commitment and their courage

 

while fearing the next pass of the scourge.
