Translation of TIGRE MUERTO – Selección de Poemas nicaragüenses,1930-33 y 1935. de Pablo Cuadra

Sueña el cadáver del jaguar su última rapiña
y en el pequeño cielo frío y azul
que guarda su pupila
zopilotes insomnes cierran círculos negros
sobre el esqueleto de vaca de la luna.
Dead Tiger – translation by Kameron Cole
the dream of a tiger’s cadaver, his last prey
in the tiny sky cold and blue
that guards the pupil
black circles of insomniac vultures close in on the skeleton of the cow in the moon
