A girl with kaleidoscope eyes

"Picture yourself in a boat on a river, 
With tangerine trees and marmalade skies
Somebody calls you, you answer quite slowly,
A girl with kaleidoscope eyes.

Cellophane flowers of yellow and green,
Towering over your head.
Look for the girl with the sun in her eyes,
And she's gone..."

meneando el abanico..."

"Penélope" (fragmento)

with her brown leather bag
and her high heel shoes
and her Sunday dress.
sits down on a bench at the platform
and waits for the first train
waving her fan..."
