 A Sailor's Suicide  (Santiago, Chile)


The Pump man, 

       didn’t take to shore the cargo,
he never came back from Santiago.



The sailors 
           started heaving the lines,*                      *mooring lines
they had the loss in their minds.

Santiago, 
          the port where all began,
and the vessel 
       sailed without a Pump man. 

It was believed he had an affair
and could not withstand 
                     that she didn’t care.
