One Poem. One Planet. — Cesar Vallejo



Another ay has triumphed. The truth is there.
And whoever acts that way, won’t he know
how to train excellent dijitigrades
for the mouse? Yes…No…?

Another ay has triumphed and against no one.
Oh exosmosis of water chemically pure.
Ah my southerns. Oh our divines.
I have the right then
to be green and happy and dangerous, and to be
the chisel, what the coarse colossal block fears;
to put my foot in and to my laughter.

Absurdity, only you are pure.
Absurdity, only facing you does this ex-
cess sweat golden pleasure.

–Cesar Vallejo, (Peru) from Trilce
