To wade into desire

To wade into desire

as if it were a tomb;

to rise from the dead

as if one had never perished.

To seek not the end

but the beginning;

to march on untouched

by the stillness;

to speak in a voice

that is one’s own.

I have tried this, and more,

to no avail.

Hermoso! To wade... hacía tiempo que no usaban, ni leía, ese verbito.
