“January First” by Octavio Paz

Posted in Sign on January 23, 2010 by 1place

“The year’s doors open
like those of language
toward the unknown.
Last night you told me:

tomorrow
we shall have to think up signs, sketch a landscape, fabricate a plan
on the double page
of day and paper.
Tomorrow, we shall have to invent,
once more,
the reality of this world.

When you open your eyes
we’ll walk, once more,
among the hours and their inventions.
We’ll walk among appearances
and bear witness to time and its conjugations.
Perhaps we’ll open the day’s doors.
And then we shall enter the unknown.”

Translated by Elizabeth Bishop as cited in “Maps of the Imagination” by Peter Turchi & at http://www.whistleandfish.com/g/january1.html & http://bit.ly/6ZPwQc
