Oh the glory when you ran outside with your shirt tucked in and your shoes untied and you told me not to follow you.
Now every mortal has pain
and sweat is constant,
but if there is anything dearer than being alive,
it’s dark to me.

(whatever it is) that glitters on the earth—
we call it life. We know no other.
The underworld’s a blank
and all the rest just fantasy.

Sandra Cisneros, from “Eyes of Zapata,” Woman Hollering Creek (via lifeinpoetry)
