Voices Of The Silence I

You did not come with us
where the rains beat us
where the marshes gorged our tired backs
to the nape of our necks
where after the rains
the sun burned with white satanic rage
turned us wanderers
before the mirage
before flowers
that beckoned with sweet smells
to pleasure domes
beyond the quicksand
