Bestiario/Bestiary (Spanish and English)

Frecuencias de sonido

rugen a través de la luz

Las criaturas deambulan

por los terrenos

de mi subconsciente

Con mi pluma

soy el recipiente

en la que mi

incendio forestal

comenzaráun nuevo mundo

dentro de un

cementerio de árboles

atado por cuero

Imágenes de estas bestias

afirmar el dominio

sobre mi mano no dominante

La intuición me guía

Estoy identificando

mi sentido

roto de la claridad

Estoy clasificado

como ermitaño

con amigos imaginarios

Las transmisiones

se envían

a través de sonidos

de Egipto y Tibet

Soy el mago

quien camina

sobre una linea flaca

en esto callejón de gris

Soy una bestiade varias capas

Muchos animales

componen mi genética

Sinceramente

este bestiario

tiene lo roto

y estas paginas

son el pegamento

Estas son las pistas

que me ayudarán a resolver

el misterio de mi falta

de sentido de plenitud


From sound frequencies
blaring through light
creatures roam the terrains
of my subconscious

With a ballpoint
I am the vessel
in which my wildfire
initiates the genesis
of a new world
within a leather bound
graveyard of trees

Images of these beasts
assert dominance
over my non-dominant hand

Intuition guides me to identify
the taxonomy of
my broken sense of clarity

Only to be classified as
a recluse with imaginary friends
in images which would be
unrecognizable to those
far less magical and
significantly less imaginative

These are transmissions
which are sent through me
with the reserved fervor
initiated by the sounds of
Egypt and Tibet

I am the conjurer
who walks a fine line in this
alley of grayness

I am the beast
taking the form of animals
which have long been symbols
of my spiritual DNA

In the truest of forms
this bestiary holds
the broken
and these pages
are the glue

These are the clues
to help me sleuth
how I may be whole
once again

-Jack M. Freedman (Jacob Moses)
