Oficio de Guillermo / Gonzalo Rojas (1917-2011)

Guillermo’s Trade

                                                 Was bleibt aber, stiften die Dichter.

                                                                            To Guillermo Sucre.

Between the mask and the transparency burns the science
of the insomniac in this book
of ivory with flames inside, with
a brain of jaguar and Holy
Spirit; let us enter with reverence
his pages of air:

let us breathe there the butterfly
of creative chaos; no one
before parted the waters of the waters, no one
could open like that the permanent instant, with this
meticulous letter, so silent.
