fire of the unborn

my life
a finger

fiddling with
crystals of perception

the experience
alone

a purposeless
flight

truth… ?

simple,
the unwritten
manifesto
of the sky

death comes

I am one more wave crashing
swelling and then
absorbed back

into
formless
immanence

disappearing once more
into fire.

Nihilistic Poetry

mi visita

Visité
la cosa,
su nombre
con ancha frontera,
pisé la franja que llega
hasta el horizonte límite,
sentí con absoluta certeza
un grano de arena
dentro del puño cerrado –
lo toqué todo de hierro y roca,
por años de inexplicable ruta
obedecí la estructura sólida
de la máquina;
ahora doy vuelta
el regreso a mi origen
a la nube
a lo ilocalizable
a lo inefable
                 de donde provengo.

towards an unknown

The Unknown

With a weightless sky in my eye
I drown in arabesque
can I blame the world
for appearing to be so real?
while walking in silence
I observed the solidity
the light calmly on the mundane;
something unfolding I called it wholeness
occult like a spirit
clever and persistent
behind the visible path that I take,
locality and image
are still my playthings
and yet something calls
like a spell to jump
into the final
unknown.

a la disperción

Poema surreal

que sería ser sangre gris
y de piel abstracta
como luz de un recuerdo,
dándole forma al vacío
con el espacio de un vuelo inquieto;
voy a cantar lo que sueña una lágrima
cuando ésta carga sal surreal en su carne,
he de poder existir al motor
de una partícula flotante en su espiral;
 hay algo emitido, innegable,
en la tosca piel de una roca:
                      su astuta inmovilidad
con ese pensar
ubicua y serena
la roca de posición
mi piel limítrofe
haré vuelo al rincón
y lágrimas resbalan
hacia entorno
como puñados de alas
              aleteando en ingrávida vida.

the big rolling ball

ball of beauty poem

I used to suffer

you see

I see a huge ball of beauty
rolling down
the corridor of experience
amazed, initially b/c there is a ball
but later simply b/c it is beautiful!
and this ball keeps rolling
beautifully, sometimes impelling me to say
it’s all dream… it’s all dream!
and yet I used to suffer
because I was sure
the end would come
this uncanny ball would
simply vanish once experience
removes the surface for it to glide
and I was so damn sure it would be over
I suffered mortally
imagining all this thrusting beauty
wasted in an absurd instant of death

oh yes
I used to suffer

but now that suffering is gone
and I keep the reasons why
to myself.
