"Verde [Green]"

Original Work in Spanish:

verde sábana sangre
sobre el campo del miedo.
solnegro, lunarrota, tierranada,
el verde y pena del oscuro
lado de la hierba, llena
mis sueños con fango y gusanos.
me arrastro, siento que nazco
tres días antes de mi día,
me tumbo, me muero
el día de mi nacimiento.
verde, horror, me abrazo a mí mismo,
solo, soterrado, yo callo, yo mierda,
yo verde.

Translation in English:

bloody sheet of green
over the field of fear.
Blacksun, cutmoon, emptyland,
the green and grief of the dark
side of the grass fills
my dreams with worms and mud.
I crawl, I feel I was born
three days before my day.
I yield, I die
the day of my proper birth.
Green, greed, I hug myself.
Alone, under earth, I shush, I shit,
I green.
