Resurrection, by Roberto Bolaño


Resurrection

Poetry enters a dream
Like a diver into a lake.
Poetry, braver than anyone else,
Enters and falls
Heavily
Into a lake, infinite like Loch Ness,
Or murky and ill-fated, like Lake Balaton.
Gaze at it from the bottom:
A diver
Innocent
Wrapped in the feathers
Of will.
Poetry enters a dream
Like a dead diver
In God’s eye.

Translated from the Spanish by Jorge Salavert, 2013.
