Inaudible vida multiplicadora
flores diminutas que flotan
dentro del laboratorio, 

Semillas, legumbres y uvas
se hospedan y estiran
en un espacio estrecho 

Frágil tórax,
donde todos cabemos
elásticos higos
duplicados, infinitamente


Inaudible multiplier life
diminutive flowers that float
       inside the lab 

seeds, beans and grapes
board and stretch
in a narrow space 

fragile thorax
where we all fit — elastic figs
duplicated, infinitely
