Octavio Paz Body Poems

  • 1.
    In my body you search the mountain
    for the sun buried in its forest.
    In your body I search for the boat
    adrift in the middle of the night.
  • 2.
    Through the conduits of blood

    spring of night
    my tongue of sun in your forest
  • 3.

    Open the curtains of your being
    Clothe you in a further nudity
    Uncover the bodies of your body
  • 4.
    More than air
    More than water
    More than lips

  • 5.
    Between now and now,
    between I am and you are,
    the word bridge.

  • 6.
    Listen to me as one listens to the rain,
    not attentive, not distracted,
    light footsteps, thin drizzle,
    water that is air, air that is time,
