In praise of poetry

Elogio de la poesía written by Omar Lara
Translated from the Spanish by Marlen Zaragoza

As you are everything
  And you are nothing 

As you do not exist
  And you live me

As you give birth to me 
  And you kill me

As you are cloud
  And you are chasm 

As you ignite 
  And extinguish me

As you fill me 
  And empty me 

As you name me 
  And word me.
