Tres is a collection of poems by the Chilean author Roberto Bolaño, originally published in Spanish in 2000 and scheduled to be published in a bilingual edition in September 2011, translated into English by Laura Healy. The collection is composed of three sections:

  • “Prose from Autumn in Gerona” - a series of prose poems.
  • “The Neochileans” - a travel narrative in verse concerned with a young band on tour in the far reaches of Chile.
  • “A Stroll Through Literature” - a series of short poems.

A selection of 16 poems from the book was published in BOMB Magazine in March 2011.
