Singapore

Para Kenia y Cris, porque hecho de menos el Pho Bo.

Letra:

We sail tonight for Singapore, we’re all as mad as hatters here
I’ve fallen for a tawny Moor, took off to the land of Nod
Drank with all the Chinamen, walked the sewers of Paris
I danced along a colored wind, dangled from a rope of sand
You must say goodbye to me

We sail tonight for Singapore, don’t fall asleep while you’re ashore
Cross your heart and hope to die when you hear the children cry
Let marrow bone and cleaver choose while making feet for children shoes
Through the alley, back from hell, when you hear that steeple bell
You must say goodbye to me

Wipe him down with gasoline ’til his arms are hard and mean
From now on boys this iron boat’s your home
So heave away, boys

We sail tonight for Singapore, take your blankets from the floor
Wash your mouth out by the door, the whole town’s made of iron ore
Every witness turns to steam, they all become Italian dreams
Fill your pockets up with earth, get yourself a dollar’s worth
Away boys, away boys, heave away

The captain is a one-armed dwarf, he’s throwing dice along the wharf
In the land of the blind the one-eyed man is king, so take this ring

We sail tonight for Singapore, we’re all as mad as hatters here
I’ve fallen for a tawny Moor, took off to the land of Nod
Drank with all the Chinamen, walked the sewers of Paris
I drank along a colored wind, I dangled from a rope of sand
You must say goodbye to me

Tom Waits.

Como ahora
no se pueden comentar tus fotos
no te puedo decir lo que ahora
no te digo:
Me encanta como retratas a la gente
Te miran como si te conocieran
Y "Las bicicletas son para el verano" que evocadora...

Y tampoco te pregunto esto:
Hablando de fotos,
¿sabes algo de mi foto?

Feliz noche de reyes de una republicana a otro

¿no vas a seguir escribiendo?
Ánimos, por si sirven de algo
Un abrazo Emilio,
