Invisibilidad sin reflejo/ Invisibility without reflection

Era una mariposa del tamaño de la montaña
atrapada en la casa de los buddhas y bodhisattvas.
Era una mariposa que no veía el vidrio

/ que la separaba del sol.

It was a butterfly the size of a mountain
trapped in the house of the buddhas and bodhisattvas.
It was a butterfly who couldn’t see the glass

/ that kept her from the sun.
