THE FACE LA CARA
Robert Gurney trans. Pere Bessó (into Catalán)


I looked at the ice
in Wardown Lake
today
near the bridge
where I once almost drowned
and saw my face
looking up at me.


Mirí el gel
a l'estany de Wardown
hui
a prop del pont xinés
on una vegada estiguí a punt d'ofegar-me
i viu el meu rostre
retornant-me la mirada.
