Clandestine Poems/Poemas Clandestinos (Spanish Edition)




"Angeles son poderes escondidos dentro los organos y faculdades del hombre." - Ibn Al 'Arabi, Gran Maestro de los Sufis



Seres Alzados


~ I ~

No temo a nada ni a nadie
Sea que ande paseando
Por las avenidas de San Salvador
O sobre los muros en Machu Picchu
Ahi voy, con pasos pesados
Aventado a toda cabeza
Deletreando frases vivientes
En tres idiomas (Frances, Ingles, y este)
Porque el mas alla no se queda quieto
Ni tan siquiera un solo instante
Menos para los quienes se inquietan
Y aquellos que se desesperan
Bueno, esos salen aun peor

~ II ~

La Muerte es transcendente
Nuestras almas; ilusion
En esta vida no hay constante
Excepto, vuestra fe y devocion
Tal como Castaneda os dijo
Que Don Juan avia dicho:
"El unico camino que debes seguir
Es uno que sobresale rebalsando
Desde tu propio sentir."
Asi que nos toca eligir
Rechasar el misterio con ciencia
Sacrificando lo ideal - o -
Bautisarse con agua pura de consciencia
Cual es la misma energia
Del espacio abierto, universal!

Principia Poetica

"It is Language which speaks" 
~ Stéphane Mallarmé

Principia Poetica


Poetry lacking controversy is like a story without conflict: boring!

Poesy acts like a mirror, which reflects the souls of its readers
so the less that people understand themselves
the less theyll understand this inner dimension of poetics.

The best poems touch upon powerful, universal themes
tapped from our collective unconscious;
themes that transcend these tautologies.

Some poems are far greater than the sum of their words.

Whereas Poets are mere conduits ...
Trance-channelers reveling in ecstasy
graced by a muse’s embrace!

Unloving


Unloving


Accusing him of selfishness
She is not self-aware
Promotes her work well
But leaves him threadbare

He lays patient siege
Yet her walls are unscalable
Tries to soothe her bruised heart
Which remains unassailable

Every sound from his voice
Backfires without fail
Any action he takes
Her critique does derail

There were brighter days
When their thoughts were in sync
Mutual vibes; bodies entwined
Now peace falls apart in a blink!

It happens to most of us
Though we dread its arrival
Roads lead to dead ends
Sweet words turn to libel

[ This is the lemonade squeezed from the bitter lemons of a rancid romance. ]

AntiPoets are opposed to many personalities —

Are Poets against anything like this:

Opposed against egoism oozing truisms sophomoric?

To anything oozing apply pressure firmly.

Many like truisms, pressure they reject;

Personalities this sophomoric firmly reject | poetry!

Hymn For Quetzalcoatl

Hymn For Quetzalcoatl


Come Toltec Pharaoh
Arrive and take your place 
Among the figureheads of destiny
Apply your bird's-eye-view
To reinterpret history
All learning is remembering
How to reconcile the Real 
Unto an Ideal
Uniting Physics & Metaphysics
In that transcendental matrimony
Foretold by William Blake
Which occurs through Tantric alchemy

When Apollo melds into Dionysus
Odin rejoins his blood brother Loki
And Shiva is as one with Shakti
Then the Feathered Serpent can't be far off
Accompanied by his dark, bloodthirsty twin
Tezcatlipoca; smoking mirror

So come now Toltec Pharaoh
Descended from Atlantis
Born to wield
Jaguar's brutal strength
In perfect balance with
Eagle's atemporal vision

Your people await . . .
