This chapter describes the work of Antonio Cornejo Polar and Néstor García Canclini, outlining an enquiry into the possibility of rethinking time substantively, against the historically fractured backdrop of colonial and postcolonial Peru. It postulates other temporalities which would refuse to adjust to the centralising narratives of the modern, and finds instances of them in the poems of Trilce by César Vallejo. It explains Culturas híbridas by García Canclini. Trilce serves as a workshop for experiments which could reveal associations between time and language. In Vallejo's restitution, coloniality stands exposed as a sedimentation of power, as power over time, in language.

Keywords:   Antonio Cornejo Polar, Néstor García Canclini, Peru, Trilce, César Vallejo, Culturas híbridas, time, language, coloniality
