“Gloria a esas manos aborígenes porque trabajaban.

Gloria a esas manos negras porque trabajaban.
Gloria a esas manos blancas porque trabajaban.”
Juan Antonio Corretjer

there among the moon
and sun
Iguanaboina signaled
my arrival

i had found the cave
the serpent and
a stone from which Atabey
drilled and looked through
the hole

Inriri carved my future

in the clouds there were dreams
and in the bite
of the reptile-cobra
those dreams
became a sounding conch

the owls regained
their razor-slit eyes
and my life was set free

free to worship flamboyant trees
and dualities
