Some games can never be won… My new neighbor warned me about you—she said you’re “weird.” And she’s right—there is something a little… off about you. You invite people over for a barbecue without bothering to clean. You wear T-shirts with divisive political statements on them, make jokes about genitals in mixed company, and don’t seem to care what people think of you. Weird, indeed. Because I’ve spent my whole life proving myself to others, trying to fit in. Trying to live a better life than the little girl who was tortured at school, who had holes in her shoes, who cowered under the covers while her parents’ screams shook the walls. And I’ve finally done it. This quiet, upscale community, the stunning homes and well-coifed families who live in it—this is the perfect place for my family. The life I always dreamed of. But somehow, despite all my resolve to fit in here, I’ve ended up across the table from the “weird” girl. Your kitchen table is smeared with paint, and the tea you’ve served me tastes suspiciously like dirt. Between us sits a gleaming chessboard. And you are about to introduce me to a game I can never win. Angsty, discomfiting, and low-key erotic, “The Pawn” explores the razor thin line that separates jealousy from desire.

JACOB DIX was a pawnbroker, but not a Jew, notwithstanding his occupation and the Hebraic sound of his baptismal name. He was so old that no one knew his real age; so grotesque in looks that children jeered at him in the streets; so avaricious that throughout the neighborhood he was called "Skinflint." If he possessed any hidden good qualities to counterbalance his known bad ones, no person had ever discovered them, or even had taken the trouble to look for them. Certainly Jacob, surly and uncommunicative, was not an individual inclined to encourage uninvited curiosity. In his pawn-shop he lived like an ogre in a fairy-tale castle, and no one ever came near him save to transact business, to wrangle during the transaction thereof, and to curse him at its conclusion. Thus it may be guessed that Jacob drove hard bargains. The pawn-shop--situated in Carby's Crescent, Lambeth--furthermore resembled an ogre's castle inasmuch as, though not filled with dead men's bones, it contained the relics and wreckage, the flotsam and jetsam, of many lives, of many households. Placed in the center of the dingy crescent, it faced a small open space, and the entrance of the narrow lane which led therefrom to the adjacent thoroughfare. In its windows--begrimed with the dust of years--a heterogeneous mixture of articles was displayed, ranging from silver teapots to well-worn saucepans; from gold watches to rusty flatirons; from the chisel of a carpenter to the ivory framed mirror of a fashionable beauty. The contents of Dix's window typified in little the luxury, the meanness, the triviality and the decadence of latter-day civilization. There was some irony, too, in the disposition of incongruous articles; for the useful and useless were placed significantly in proximity, and the trifles of frivolity were mingled with the necessaries of life. Here a Dresden china figure, bright-hued and dainty, simpered everlastingly at a copper warming-pan; there a silver-handled dagger of the Renaissance lay with a score of those cheap dinner-knives whose bluntness one execrates in third-rate restaurants. The bandaged hand of a Pharaohonic mummy touched an agate saucer holding defaced coins of all ages, of all nations. Watches, in alternate rows of gold and silver, dangled over fantastic temples and ships of ivory carved by laborious Chinese artificers. On a square of rich brocade, woven of silks, multi-colored as a parrot's plumage, were piled in careless profusion medals, charms, old-fashioned rings set with dim gems, and the frail glass bangles of Indian nautch-girls. A small cabinet of Japanese lacquer, black, with grotesque gilded figures thereon; talismans of coral from Southern Italy, designed to avert the evil eye; jeweled pipes of Turkey, set roughly with blue turquoise stones; Georgian caps with embroideries of tarnished gold; amulets, earrings, bracelets, snuff-boxes and mosaic brooches from Florence--all these frivolities were thrown the one on top of the other, and all were overlaid with fine gray dust. Wreckage of many centuries; dry bones of a hundred social systems, dead or dying! What a commentary on the durability of empire--on the inherent pride of pigmy man!

Vivo un poco fuera del tiempo y el espacio. Me encanta imaginarme en un campo —hace siglos— espantando cuervos o verme pasear a orillas de los ríos de la Patagonia. Me esfuerzo por crear una poesía minimalista. Como Huidobro, borro el adjetivo que no agrega nada. Busco una poesía a menudo gráfica. ¿Para qué? Busco la verdad, no la verdad masiva de la brocha gorda sino las pequeñas verdades de la vida. No siempre vemos las pequeñas cosas. Las persigo. Me gustan los sencillos actos de la humanidad: una sonrisa, una lágrima y los de la naturaleza: de una hormiga o una culebra. Absorbo cada día palabras de anuncios, tanto viejo como nuevo, escenas o voces del mercado, e-mails, periódicos, la televisión, películas, cuadros, fotos, los movimientos de los animales y pájaros del jardín. En mis textos hay una mezcla de realismo objetivo e imaginación subjetiva. Confieso que, al estilo de Raymond Carver, cambio a veces unos detalles para producir cierto efecto y mi imaginación puede arreglar las cosas según sus propias leyes. Creo que no es siempre el poeta quien crea los poemas. Es otra cosa. Es decir, creo en la inspiración. Mis amigos dicen que mis poemas sugieren cosas, que no lo dicen todo. No busco ese efecto. Ocurre, probablemente, como resultado de mi minimalismo. Otros dicen que hay ironía en mi poesía. Sin duda, pero ocurre naturalmente, sin que yo lo busque. Escribo para crear un espacio personal dentro de las narrativas que quieren absorber mi generación. De vez en cuando nos quieren aplastar o nos arrastran. Quiero encontrar un hueco, un sitio, un espacio donde poder ser yo mismo, donde poder respirar. La poesía es ese sitio para mí y, creo, para mis amigos. Me encantan las cosas que van desapareciendo, tal como un mural en una casa en el valle del río Negro en Argentina. Mis amigos dicen que mis poemas son a veces tristes, melancólicos. Me inspira mucho lo que ya no existe. Me gusta el pasado, las cosas que viven en mi memoria. Sin embargo, no descarto la realidad actual. Está en mi poesía.
