The Compass


The compass

Where do you have the compass?
they asked us
at the crossroads
(in the green daybreak).
Where is the compass?
they searched
the pigsty,
and Umbral in his big car
brought us to police station,
where is the compass?
to buy transfers, and ink,
cold sweat of dawn and madness,
where is the compass?
after the Fallas
of paper and chocolate,
rumor of Clamoxyl
in the key of firecrackers.
Where do you have the compass?
Where, where???
Where, where???
We don't have it;
We smoked it all.
