Lanza tu poesía / Ludovico Silva

Throw Your Poetry

Throw your poetry like an energetic dagger at
     reality; you’ll see how reality sends it back to you
     with even more strength

Don’t get drunk to know reality; it’s
     already drunk. It’s up to you to stay lucid.

The pure love of words doesn’t last forever;
there comes a moment when things impose themselves.

28 October 1968

{ Ludovico Silva, Cuaderno de la noche, Caracas: Editorial Arte, 1979 }
