a star poem


SEVENTH VIEW OF THE SOUTHERN CROSS

Machu Picchu, Peru, 1400 AD

The world of the gods is yours, Chakana,

yours and the condor’s. Even the mountains

can’t lift me out of the puma’s paw; up here

where the air is just the sigh of a dream

I’m as far from you as if I crawled in the dust

down in the earthy world of the snake.
