Chile

not just pacific air but mountain and desert too 

People’s air that fills the mountain valley 

The desires that permeate the desert’s cracked soil 

The blue haze of a day dripping with 

shine 

on a dancer’s embroidered shoes 

their soles quenched by passion 

Passion in the sand that coats fibreglass 

Passion in empanadas whose warmth soothes the body after a long day 

 

downtrodden searching for my path 

may I stumble upon it with Patagonia 

in the small pleasures of exchange among strangers 

in the discomfort of transportation and

simple decisions made monumental in time
