Interlude – offloading beasts of sadness

The book Oxen Rage by Juan Gelman is forthcoming in English translation. I’m not sure how I’ll feel about it, but these lines from the poem “For now” are worth reproducing:
twilight was anchored in that port with a hazardous languor
arriving from africa the great devourer
offloading beasts of sadness guns traps bogus ebony
