Flamenco Vignettes

  SINGING CAFÉ

Lamps of crystal
and green mirrors.

On the dark stage
Parrala holds
a dialogue
with death.
Calls her,
she won’t come,
Calls her again.
The people
swallow their sobbing.
And in the green mirrors
long trails of silk
move.

autógrafo

Federico García Lorca
Translation by A. S. Kline
