Poetry Is Music

Music that arises from the unconscious mind,

Or the soul, the brain on the verge of sleep,

Poetry freeing the shaman`s wings

As a fish flying over Lake Guatavita,

A jaguar breathing dreams of fire,

Visions escaping the Guilt and Fear

That Someone wishes always to infect

Your life with, to make you

Crippled:  yeah!  drive Him back

As an evil dragon with your flaming sword.

O Realm Without Frontiers, resplendent

Garden Of Poetry!

Let all the birds of the Andean skies,

And all the women with gorgeous eyes,

Fly and sing in siren song

And bathe us in invulnerability!
