Orange blossoms blowing over Castile

children begging for coins

I met my love under an orange tree

or was it an acacia tree

or was he not my love?

I read this, then I dreamed this:

can waking take back what happened to me?

Bells of San Miguel

ringing in the distance

his hair in the shadows blond-white

I dreamed this,

does that mean it didn't happen?

Does it have to happen in the world to be real?

I dreamed everything, the story

became my story:

he lay beside me,

my hand grazed the skin of his shoulder

Mid-day, then early evening:

in the distance, the sound of a train

But it was not the world:

in the world, a thing happens finally, absolutely,

the mind cannot reverse it.

Castile: nuns walking in pairs through the dark garden.

Outside the walls of the Holy Angels

children begging for coins

When I woke I was crying,

has that no reality?

I met my love under an orange tree:

I have forgotten

only the facts, not the inference—

there were children, somewhere, crying, begging for coins

I dreamed everything, I gave myself

completely and for all time

And the train returned us

first to Madrid

then to the Basque country
