DPF / Cabral de Melo Neto

For sun threads and an hour less of morning, from The FSG Book of Twentieth Century Latin American Poetry, edited by Ilan Stavans.

from Weaving the Morning / by João Cabral de Melo Neto (9 January 1920 – 9 October 1999), translated by Galway Kinnell

One rooster does not weave a morning,
he will always need the other roosters.
