Stone Beds [A Poem and an Advance]
Stone Beds [Pompeii's surge]Advance: after the great flare-up of Pompeii's adjoining volcano, Vesuvius, some two-thousand years ago in the halcyon days of the Roman Empire, what was left of the city were by and large ashes of stone from an unleashing furnace; it is hard to dream what the ancestors went because of (none, not one being survived). I can only guess from the looks of the city today, and in its early excavations, its colonize were baked alive or asleep, like pottery.
Testimony to the Night [In English and Spanish]
In the quiet of the cold night- In its deep northern skies, Dim are the lights, in its coldEvening frost?! Even the stars of the arctic Seem like a ghost stone frozen!Here, here is where you find Peace and the beast within-! Remote, no ears or wordsTo disorder the mind To ensconce the throat; Here, here is where you die?(for a moment).Here, the sky has eternal eyes Eyes with cosmic tides Tides that never rest: they warWith the Universe- Likened to a dark deep abyss; Endless and never resting?Here my eyes seek and search In countless hours, ebbing and Sweeping the heavens aboveNumbing, changeless- Are the cosmos, the heavens? Here resides a alien peace?Here, resides a bizarre peace With an army of stars to defeat Shinning, mutely in the darkThe ebbing, eldritch dark; Time has no bearing here, Here, resides a strange, peace?Cold and oddly numb are my feet, As I look up, upon the many bridges One star bridging the next-as if,If Kings and Queens were Guarding them-the Hosts- O-Yes! A strange, curious peace?Ah! Praise, praise be to thee, to thee Flaming, furious firmaments-ye, Ye, be reminiscent me not, of the wars I left,Of the foes, divine immortals?The enemies that never rest Ah! Praise, praise be to thee, to theeI hear music, harmony from afar (there) There are storms buried in a storehouse, For tomorrow-war beyond, beyondOrion's dust?perpetual dust; There, there the sun is dim to bleak.
