Octavio Paz

“a silent concave of puppet buffoons
neither eagles nor jaguars
buzzard lawyers
wings of ink sawing mindibles
ventriloquist coyotes
peddlers of shadows
beneficent satraps
the cacomistle thief of hens
the monument to the Rattle and its snake
the altar to the mauser and the machete
the mausoleum of the epauletted cayman
rhetoric sculpted in phrases of cement”

Octavio Paz
