Roberto Bolaño



Macedonio Fernández

Cae la calesa y la cadera por el hueco de la eternidad.
Por el surco por el grito del pajarraco que es el surco.
¿Y tan despreocupado el espejo del viejo ángel?
Como una ciudad en el confín es el hueco de la bondad.


Macedonio Fernández

Horse cart and haunches fall headlong through the hole of eternity.
Through the ditch through the screech of the vulture that is the ditch.
And so carefree the aged angel’s mirror?
As a city on the confines is the hole of kindness.
