EL PASÁU YE’L FUTURU

 

 

Dellos entá camienten

que nun esisten les pantasmes.

Les pantasmes somos nos

cuandu naguamos

por facer aportar el pasáu

al presente con pallabres.

El pasáu namái ye eso,

pallabres que caltienen

el mesmu soníu

con un significáu estremáu.

El pasáu namai ye’l futuru

de los que nun tienen futuru.

  

 

THE PAST IS THE FUTURE

 

 

Some still think

that ghosts do not exist.

We are the ghosts

when we want to bring

the past to the present

with words.

The past is only that,

words which preserve

the same sound

with a different meaning.

The past is only the future

of those who have no future.
