Maria in Motion

Maria, Maria, Maria
you look so fine
to me; your skin is brown like caramel
all sprawled out in the moonlight.
You lie like a lavender twilight,
would you still be cloaked in fog?

She used to kneel in bed to hold me like a marionette,
but you're not a mother you're a dancer
with no strings attached.
Maria, Maria, Maria
she's just a child
who asked me to make her a woman; but I am not the one
who pays for her clothes and her schooling and cares for her. And will she take care of me
when she herself is strong.
"I am with child, my skin's turned pale
so I am begging you, please just..."

I will honor your request,
never travel to Mexico
and see silver objects there
under a pale moon.
But from that sterile palette, will I know how to love her?
I am in love with learning, the knowledge that I am safe,
so I will teach you something called inmovil.
Look up in the sky, my love, a stationary bird,
so still. So still, I need to describe you
with pictures inmovil.
Mira al cielo, mi amor, un ave inmovil.
Mira al cielo, mi amor, un ave inmovil.
Maria, Maria, Maria, oh she's just a child
who asked me to make her a woman; but I am not the one
who pays for her clothes and her schooling and cares for her. And will she take care of me
when she herself is strong.

I see you in your window sometimes,
watching the swirling clouds. I am on a lazy river, where it never ends.
And I think I may write you sometime, via internet.
No matter what the hackers find
they can't change what I have sent.
