Amarillo as published by Literariedad December 2016



like that street
wandered down street
no siesta noon
shadowed woman leans
black iron filigree not quite a balcony
lace the colour of some-place else
drawn as if a breeze
pecan smooth her face

what would the story be?
choose that place you should not go
walnut doors second floor
barefoot invitation
whisper of late grapes
hint of something strong
dull embroidered armchair
unlaced boots
dusted finger prints
smooth as kisses table
folded towels
uncertain colour
enameled basin
clear glass tumblers
lemons sliced in water
sunlight striping something velvet on the bed

Literariedad es una revista electrónica nacida en Pereira, Colombia, en mayo de 2013. Asume la literatura, la poesía, el cine y el teatro como calles, lugares de encuentro y desencuentro. Inspirada en la idea que suscitó Jaime Sabines: “No soy un poeta, soy un peatón”, y en la obsesión que llevó a Robert Walser a morir en la nieve, busca difundir la crítica, la ficción, la poesía (y el pensamiento en torno a la misma) sin ninguna razón más que la de existir como todas las cosas: por un impulso ciego y desbocado.

Literariedad is an electronic magazine born in Pereira, Colombia in May of 2013. Literariedad presumes that literature, poetry, film, and theatre are like streets, places to be found and lost once again. Inspired by a quote by Jaime Sabines, “I’m not a poet, I’m a pedestrian,” and the obsession that carried Robert Walser to die in the snow, this magazine seeks to spread criticism, fiction, poetry (and thoughts on poetry) without any other motive than that which drives all art: a blind and uncontrollable impulse.
