sólo la sed

el silencio

ningún encuentro

cuídate de mí amor mío

cuídate de la silenciosa en el desierto

de la viajera con el vaso vacío

y de la sombra de su sombra

Arbol de Diana, Alejandra Pizarnik

Queen Gertrude, Hamlet’s mother, reports in her monologue that Ophelia had climbed into a willow tree, and then a branch broke and dropped Ophelia into the brook, where she drowned. Gertrude says that Ophelia appeared incapable of her own distress.
In this essay  I examine the boundaries between life and death, between the air we breathe and the ability to breathe underwater, in a metaphoric  sense.
When the head does not see or hear, can he deal better with pain and despair ?
