Hilda Hilst / XXII / Do not look for me there

Hilda Hilst
Translated by Lavínia Saad

Do not look for me there
Where the living call upon
The so-called dead.
Look for me
Within the deep waters
In squares
Within a heart fire
Between horses, dogs,
In the ricefields, along the high bank
Or with the birds
Or mirrored
In someone else,
Climbing a hard path

Rock, seed, salt
Life's paths. Look for me there.
