Cementaries in the Snow

"Los pajaros prefieren atravesar el cielo,
herir los invisibles corredores del aire
para dejar sola la nieve,
que es como dejarla intacta,
que es como dejarla nieve.

Porque no basta decir que un cementerio en la nieve
es como un sueno sin suenos
ni como unos ojos en blanco.
Si algo tiene de un cuerpo insensible y dormido,
de la caida de un silencio sobre otro
y de la blanca persistencia del olvido,
a nada puere compararse un cementerio en la nieve!

Porque la nieve es sobre todo silenciosa,
mas silenciosa aun sobre las losas exangues:
labios que ya no pueden decir una palabra."

-Xavier Villaurrutia

I tried to make my ripped to the bone white jeans last night.
Failed.
Cut them into shorts and dropped black india ink all over em.
Like them better this way...
