AN UNCOMMON THOUGHT

"The real trick to life is not to be in the know, but to be in the mystery."

Taught.

Salzwedel, Reflection, 2010


Mineral cacti,
quicksilver lizards in the adobe walls,
the bird that punctures space,
thirst, tedium, clouds of dust,
impalpable epiphanies of wind.
The pines taught me to talk to myself.
In that garden I learned to send myself off.
Later there were no gardens.

Octavio Paz
