Las venas siempreabiertas, vistas por un poeta canadiense


For reasons any
could tell
this is a favourite nook
for massacre

So any farmer can see how the strawberries
are the biggest
and the reddest
in the whole damn continent
but why
when arranged
under the market flies
do they look like small clotting hearts?

Alfred Earle Birney, poeta, nacido en Calgary en 1904.
