Endlessly I fall above the rocks of dreams, I fall amid the clouds of death.
I meet the Virgin seated on a rose, and she says to me:
"Look at my hands: they are as lucid as light bulbs. Do you see the filaments from which my pure light's blood flows?"

from "Altazor or The Parachute Voyage" by Vicente Huidobro
