Mine The Gap

Every word is a doubt,
every silence another doubt.
However,
the intertwining of both
let us breathe.

All sleeping is a sinking down,
all waking another sinking.
However,
the intertwining of both
let us rise up again.

All life is a form of vanishing,
all death another form.
However,
the intertwining of both
let us be a sign in the void.

Roberto Juarroz, from “Eleventh Vertical Poetry” (translated by Mary Crow)
