Ritual de arena / Emilio Adolfo Westphalen

Sand Ritual

How do the cymbals sound
the rattlesnakes the bones
the human leather of the tambourine?
the concert is stirring and moves
thick layers of terrestrial bark
tears out fugitive stars
as whirling skies
tear each other apart
to the sound of carved up suns
in the renovating dance of chaos
Absorbent chaos
light and dark.

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