Carro por puesto / Rafael Cadenas

Commuter Van

Wind on the face,
familiar constellations —Scorpio, Taurus, Sagittarius—
business billboards, street-road, dogs barking;
routine leads like a thread back home:
lamp, another moon in the window,
wise books,
A route
that gathers the nights
in a single one.
The ghetto always
with its viscera on display.
You are all of this,
distilled shade.
Separation is merely a counterpart
of a seeing.

Memorial (1977)
