    THE WAYS TO SEE AND BE AN ANGEL

                  II

So then, an angel is
our spiritual bodyguard
who protects us from our material enemies,
supernatural ones and those
we ourselves engender
out of dreams, images and words,
it is the one who wrestles at midnight,
in the middle of the bed, and half-way down the street,
against these hateful fi gures
and fi gures that we love.

autógrafo

Homero Aridjis
Translated by George McWhirter
