A White woman

You are a name sprouting
 on the mouth of God
You are above poetry...
Above roses,
Above creation and birth...

Before you a tribe of women
Was not washed with poetry...
And after you, the roses did not
live on the balconies
And love messages have not filled the
the editing of the drawers of the girls
Before you, a young girl has never become a poem
When she sleeps she becomes a butterfly
Before you...
The world has not been engraved
with words
