From “Bestiario” (“Bestiary”), Pablo Neruda
In this world, rushing, suddenly quiet,
I need more communication,
other languages, other signs;
I want to know this world.
I want to speak with many things,
and I will not leave this planet
without knowing what I came to find
without solving this affair
and people are not enough.
have to go much farther,
and I have to go much closer.
