Where to post this

I'm not sure, I'm a little shy at the idea of sharing my poetry. Spanish is my mother tongue, but I'd like to write some poetry in English as well. Perhaps some English speaker here wants to help me with translation. :-k
Tomorrow I'll introduce myself to the forums, but today I'd rather stay here as a Spanish-speaking poet.

La lucha de los coches
rebotando contra
el brillo opaco del pavimento.
Soportando revoluciones,
ruedas que, por cientos,
se agrupan en la longitud
de una avenida más...

y te sigo viendo.

Otra vez, más allá
de la distracción cotidiana y,
aunque no me llamás,
tu presencia me llama
más allá de sí,
como diciendo "estoy aquí".

Continúo en marcha,
todavía te veo,
cuadra tras cuadra,
en las esquinas,
reflejado en las ventanas.

¡Cómo a golpes de viento y lluvia
se te arruga el alma!

Entreverado entre los demás,
no parecés diferente
sin embargo, desentonás,
porque en tus ojos
y rodeando toda tu existencia
hay un abismo de despojos
que te desacerca.


Enclenques historias cercanas
se funden en chapa, papel
y cemento.
Vísceras en alcohol,
sedientas de hierro,
vibran con los motores
que apuran, violentos,
su gris agonía
por el pavimento.

Y ya no te veo.


Hope you like it!
