Extravagaria | Pablo Neruda

"For once on the face of the earth,
let's not speak in any language;
let's stop for one second,
and not move our arms so much"

merelybookish Well that slays! Poets writing in Spanish are on ? (Also, I just adore the phrase "no truck" -- so points to the translator too.) 4y
