DPF / Orozco

For ghostly carriages, from The FSG Book of Latin American Poetry, edited by Ilan Stavans.

from Ballad of Forgotten Places / by Olga Orozco (1920-1999, Argentina) translated by Marcy Crow

My places would look like broken mirages,
clippings of photographs torn from an album to orient nostalgia,
but they have roots deeper than this sinking ground,
these fleeing doors, these vanishing walls.
