Del fuego viene... / Emilio Adolfo Westphalen

From fire comes...

From fire comes and in it ends all music
There’s no difference between music and a fire.
The columns of sound end in flames —
The musics bubble in the fire.
A burning magma dances and overwhelms itself.
Dismember me to the fire of music —
In embers of music bury me
Sweet and terrifying music
cheers the air and spirit.

{ Emilio Adolfo Westphalen, Simulacro de sortilegios: Poesía completa, Madrid: Visor Libros, 2006 }
