It is only when

she touches it

and finds

herself caught

 

   
that she
realizes
glass is an
invisible
despot,
 
 

but it is her very
own clear gaze
that frees her,
and suddenly she
finds herself

not through

the glass like

Alice but on

this side of it,

on the roof

of the Las Letras 

 

 

wearing

white

and

 

white of skin and hair, reflected by
 

a surface that has become her friend,

 

that doubles and carves and gives way

to white sky, to the roofs of Madrid,

 

and suddenly

she's flying 

 down the

stairs, she

walks

      landings and hallways of
            words, she takes off
        the white, frees
    herself from the day,

caressed

by light and

writings on

the walls

she wears

the night, the

elegance of gold

and black

then stairs

again, stairs

descending,

 
 

 

and

 

 

 finally

 

 

the

 

  

 hall,

 

where you
see her, and
catch her eye,
and earn the
mockery of
her gesture.
