Big Window

a quick glimpse of something beautiful

Porvenir (future, fortune) by Farid Matuk

Montezuma meets Cortes
Pizarro greets Atahualpa
each says I can’t imagine
what will come their interpreters
say neither can we

arm in arm
they walk the coast
the mountain ridge saying
man alive for now
I’ve a husband I’ve a wife

I’ve the freshest kids
learning the newest
dances everyone
is dying and most everyone dying
is happy for spring
