by Sergio Ortiz



I ask for nothing
of this land
that has given me everything

I loved and hated its men
found my Adam          he fled with a bodybuilder
as soon as I gained weight

I sought God
and in his place found knowledge
I discovered a home in my body

and since then
moved from place to place
without desires 

this is my way
my destiny does not depend on luck
I am the night bird
foretelling death in its song
