The 75 Part I / La Parte I 75



After a year spent lying
Living under a name not my own
Burrowing into a culture
Into its darkest parts
The door at last stood ajar
A welcome the sane would not desire
But those of us paid to be crazy
Are trained to yearn for
I will not mention the place
No true names or dates
For they fit the term classified
More than most matters of state

Blindfolded
Loaded in trucks
Driven for hours
To what we discovered to be
Nowhere
A camp with four buildings
Barbed wire walls
Armed sentries on patrol
And I took inventory
Of my traveling companions
Revealed at last
75 of us total
All still blinking
From the too bright sun
After hours of darkness
Shown politely to our building
Given a bunk and a pack
A uniform
Told to make and use our beds
For sleep would be essential for what was to come

Awakened before the sun
A hearty morning run
Through vigorous terrain
A jeep with three men beside us
Studying us too closely
I hid in the middle of the pack
And watched as they first two men
Crossed the finish line in smiling victory
And were shot dead
And we all
Those 73 of us remaining
Stopped as still as stone
One of the men in the jeep
Who held the bearing of commander
Spoke very clearly
Plainly, without emotion
"We do not seek those
Who seek to stand out.
We need only those who are
Whispers in the wind
Myths, ghosts"



Después de un año pasó tumbado
Vivir bajo un nombre no es mi propia
Madriguera en una cultura
En sus partes más oscuras
La puerta al fin estaba entornada
Una bienvenida los cuerdos no desearía
Pero aquellos de nosotros pagamos que estar loco
Están entrenados para añorar
No voy a mencionar el lugar
No hay nombres o fechas verdaderas
Para encajan el término clasificado
Más que la mayoría de los asuntos de Estado

Con los ojos vendados
Cargada en camiones
Impulsado por horas
Para lo que hemos descubierto para ser
En ninguna parte
Un campamento con cuatro edificios
Muros de alambre de púas
Centinelas armados en patrulla
Y tomé el inventario
De mis compañeros de viaje
Revelada al fin
75 de nosotros en total
Todo sigue parpadeando
Desde el demasiado sol brillante
Después de horas de oscuridad
Se muestra cortésmente a nuestro edificio
Dada una litera y un paquete
Un uniforme
Contada de hacer y usar nuestras camas
Para sueño sería esencial para lo que estaba por venir

Despierto antes que el sol
Una carrera por la mañana calurosa
A través de terreno vigorosa
Un jeep con tres hombres junto a nosotros
Nos Estudiar muy de cerca
Me escondí en la mitad de la tabla
Y observó cómo dos primeros hombres
Cruzado la línea de meta en la victoria sonriente
Y fueron asesinados a tiros
Y todos
Los 73 de nosotros restante
Detenido tan inmóvil como una piedra
Uno de los hombres en el jeep
Quién celebrada el cojinete del comandante
Habló con mucha claridad
Es evidente, sin emoción
"No buscamos los
Que tratan de destacar.
Sólo aquellos que están necesitamos
Susurros en el viento
Mitos, fantasmas "

I feel sorry for those first two...life is often like that, isn't it? those who stand out get shot down or pulled down by others.

Very well written poem! A bit nerveracking to read but that makes it what it is....great work.
