about

A deep waltz with a theme inspired by the Venezuelan coastal town of the same name by the mouth of the Cúpira river. As a once vice-ridden port town, it serves as a symbol of tropical misery: addictions, beauty, freedom, and abandonment.

lyrics

Piedra, papel, tijera,
Piedra, palo del río,
Pero quién lo dijera,
Tanto suelto y sentido.
El azar de una mano
o corriente al destino,
recoge ese cadáver
remójalo en comino.

Trazo un verso de raso,
el vaso en un trago contuvo ese abrazo
hasta aquí llego
el palo, la piedra, en suspensión eterna.
Ya caí, ya bebí, ya volví,
Tragada y expulsada en cenizas,
Despertando y rompiendo el trío,
Amanecida, andando y bebiendo, ahora sí:
La candela del río.

Cuentas altas y bajas,
lo que trajo tu brío.
Nube sola y rodada
en frasco limpio y vendido.
Un puente derrochado
casi hendiendo el olvido,
retejido y encaminado en el hilo de un trino.

Trazo…
