Hoy día he visto a la Diosa Ambarina... / Emilio Adolfo Westphalen

Today I have seen the Amber Goddess...

Today I have seen the Amber Goddess –the same complexion as amber– her eyes of blaze and shadows –incarnation of the only and perennial Beauty.
Her splendid Ire embraced my spirit –her funest Beauty stoked itself in my blood– her disproportionate Rancor and Hate were my glory.
I am not –I will never be anything but an astonished somnambulist facing the dreadful Beauty of the Amber Goddess.
Nothing exists –nothing can exist beyond the Amber Goddess and her Beauty of a dazzling and lethal Medusa.

{ Emilio Adolfo Westphalen, Ha vuelto la Diosa Ambarina, Lima: Jaime Campodónico/Editor, 1989 }
