Example text

So I am charged in my own field, to give birth to the solar wind, particles spiraling around the line of my body, moving toward the disruption, the moment when the oil of my star at noon is a new dawn. [Elaine’s Book 86–7] Giving birth to the solar wind renews the Aztec sense of desire’s persistence, but this shamaness is an African woman, since the harmattan is a dust-laden wind on the Atlantic coast of Africa. Turned towards the flames, she enters her spirit-trance and is reborn, perhaps where the Rhone comes down to the Mediterranean, in a Latin culture.

A shackled Black wrist claps the clouds. I sit over a dish of moros y cristianos, bitter communion, bitter memory of no communion, bitter memory of the padre’s death. (Dimensions of History, p. / Through those limpid days/ we made love tenaciously”). However, in “The Drums” there is the combination of Christian and African ritual: In this black ghetto, Sundays and festival days change their direction. It is Easter, and I’m enchanted by a girl ... She leads a shy goddess through the proud paradiddles of a Yoruba ritual.

Turned towards the flames, she enters her spirit-trance and is reborn, perhaps where the Rhone comes down to the Mediterranean, in a Latin culture. With his reincarnation assigned to her, the poet accepts immolation, joining the finished Tolteca singers, whose work was subsumed by the Aztecs: 3 I shall go away, I shall disappear, I shall be stretched on a bed of yellow roses 22 Harold Bloom and the old women will cry for me. So the Toltecas wrote: their books are finished, but your heart has become perfect.
