6396 - When the actress cried

N. Lygeros
Traducción Luis Mario Domenzain

When the actress cried,
we found ourselves already
in the fifth act.
The incredible feeling
hadn’t yet reached her
beforehand as if
the other acts couldn’t
bear her tears.
It had taken then
the death of the poet,
to touch this woman
capable of working up
the gesture of deliverance.
And now she cried
as she had never done before
not for the public
but because of the despair
that overran her.
