Tlalpan Girls

Someday I’ll show them the big city!

Portugal (Made in Mexico) y Vida Herrera
reviven un Warhol:
“To shoe or not to shoe”*
de Tlalpan a Union Street
de estrellas y lentejuelas al escote
Son las muñecas del silicón y la gamuza
: tacones         fluxus
de cuatro forros          con empeines
abiertos           ensueños
y altísimos puentes
números 3 y 5

Zazil Alaíde Collins
Portugal (Made in Mexico) and Vida Herrera
Revive a Warhol:
“To shoe or not to shoe”*
From Tlalpan to Union Street
Of stars and sequins at the neckline
They are silicone dolls and suede
: high heels         fluxus
Of four linings       with open
Insteps          reveries
And soaring bridges
Numbers 3 and 5

Translation by Ximena Atristain

* Warhol featuring Shakespeare featuring Proust, en À la recherche du shoe perdu (1955)

Este poema es parte de Pink.
