Táctica y estrategia


Mi táctica es
mirarte
aprender como eres
quererte como eres

mi táctica es
hablarte
y escucharte
construir con palabras
un puente indestructible

mi táctica es
quedarme en tu recuerdo
no sé cómo ni sé
con qué pretexto
pero quedarme en ti

mi táctica es
ser franco
y saber que eres franca
y que no nos vendamos
simulacros
para que entre los dos

no haya telón
ni abismos

mi estrategia es
en cambio
más profunda y más
simple
mi estrategia es
que un día cualquiera
no sé cómo ni sé
con qué pretexto
por fin me necesites

Tactics and Strategy

My tactic is to look at you
To learn how you are
Love you as you are

My tactic is to talk to you
And listen to you
And construct with words
An indestructible bridge

My tactic is to stay in your memory,
I don’t know how
Nor with what pretext
But stay within you

My tactic is to be honest
And know you are too
And that we don’t sell each other illusions

So that between us there is no curtain or abyss

My strategy instead is
Deeper and simpler.

My strategy is that some day
I don’t know how, nor with what pretext
That finally you need me!
Mario Benedetti, Uruguayan journalist, novelist, and poet, in the Spanish-speaking world he was considered one of Latin America’s most important 20th-century writers (1920-2009), Táctica y estrategia, (1973-1974)
