I see the earth carrying

A weightless creature,

His name is (bird).

 

(Bird) enjoys perching

On extinct Aztec heads,

Where the eye’s break blood

And the lips stay still.

 

(Bird) was born with a compass

In his genes─

Where should I go? He says.

 

(Bird) decides to fly south,

Where the Americas

Are unknown,

And his shadow is pierced

On the oceans blue skirt

As he sails.
