Ghosts in her Voice

There are ghosts in her voice,
The flutter of energy passes through her vocal chords.
On a dark night, three voices
Flow through the spaces of our minds and ears.
Singing to each other
Under a white light.
In unison.
The poet reads,
Trying to catch up.

You can barely hear him,
But his words carry weight and tears,
A narration for the ghost,
The whining Banshees of Fado.

Ara mateix – Miquel Martí i Pol amb Lluís Llach, Sílvia Pérez Cruz i Pep Guardiola



  1. Thank you, Mario Savioni, for writing this wonderful poem that pays homage to our Catalan artists and writers like Sílvia Pérez Cruz, Lluís Llach, Miquel Martí i Pol, and also to the former Barcelona football team couch Pep Guardiola.
