Tactica and Strategy..

My tactic is
to watch you
learn what you are
love what you are

my tactic is
to talk to you
and listen to you
and build an indestructible bridge
out of words

my tactic is
to remain in your memory
I dont know how or even
under what pretext
but somehow remain in you

my tactic is
to be frank
and know that you’re frank
and that we are not selling each other
a sham
so that between us
there won’t be curtains
or abysses

my strategy is
on the other hand
simpler and more
profound

my strategy is
that one of these days
i don’t know how or even
under what pretext
you’ll finally need me.

from Mario Beneditti’s poem Tactica Y Estrategia in Spanish, Tactics and Strategy.
