César Vallejo

Moon: it is no use flying anyway,
so you go up in a flame of scattered opals:
maybe you are my heart, who is like a gypsy,
who loafs in the sky, shedding poems like tears!

— César Vallejo, from “A Divine Falling of Leaves,” trans. James Wright,Co llected Poems: James Wright (Wesleyan University Press, 1971)
