Reading this gave me just one vivid image! I like the way you have
broken up each stanza with each one standing on its own like a scene..
After reading the translation of the title got a clearer picture...the mood
really set in with a heavy tone. Congrats on the Win!!
Oops sorry, I meant hangover. Lol not hand over.
I have not experience a hangover before but I've seen in movies that sometimes people can barely walk. They can barely remember anything, and often need help from others.
When I read the line “the record skips”, i immediately read it as memory is not working. Meaning that she or he can’t remember anything.
I’m vía my phone so I cant see in which category this piece was posted. So my interpretation of the poem is based on first read. If I dwell on it some more, I might end up coming with something different.
For all I know “disco quebrado” can be just that “ a disco” that plays music. But the opening line and the title immediately made me think of spine. Lol
When I hear “disco quebrado” I immediately associate it with the spine (Se rompió un disco o algo así)and inability to walk. At first read, I get the sense that someone had a hand over??? I’m not even sure. But I enjoyed how the piece flowed as I read it.
The Title "Disco Quebrado" (Quebrado - Spanish for in seperate pieces, fragmented, broken" for me added an extra dimension to this piece. Throughout your wording and imagery is spot on promoting the dark theme of the haunting memories of broken love. An excellent write. Milly x
