La constelación deseada

Tengo la palma de la mano llena de estrellas y las arrojo sobre la mesa como si fueran dados, repetidamente, hasta que aparece la constelación que yo quiero...



Desired constellation

It's tricky when

you feel someone

has done

something on your behalf



It's slippery when

your sense of justice

murmurs underneath



And is asking you:

How am I going to make it right?

How am I going to make it right?



With a palm full of stars

I throw them like dice

repeatedly


On the table

repeatedly

I shake them like dice

and throw them on the table

repeatedly

until the desired constellation appears



How am I going to make it right?

How am I going to make it right?

How am I going to make it right?

(And you hear: how am I going to make it right?)

How am I going to make it right?

How am I going to make it right?
