in reaching for a poetry book
i found a Spanish reader, una
novela breve y facil totalemente en
espanol. it is warped from a rain I
do not remember.
did I rescue it from flood waters,
or was it next to a leaking water bottle
in my pack?
when did I read it last
long ago as I don't remember the word
"vieje", which means trip in english.
yes, I am ready for another vieje
even having just returned home,
I want to see new, let me see with new
eyes what is old, in a new language.
I will open my eyes.
