Sunday Poetry: Octavio Paz


I am a man: little do I last
and the night is enormous.
But I look up:
the stars write.
Unknowing I understand:
I too am written,
and at this very moment
someone spells me out.

--Octavio Paz

Thank you Diane. It's always good to see thoughtful verse posted on the intertubules.
