THE FACE LA CARA
Robert Gurney trans. the poet


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.


Miré el hielo
en el lago de Wardown
hoy
cerca del puente chino
donde una vez
estuve a punto de ahogarme.
Vi mi rostro
devolviéndome la mirada.
