    El Go

    Today, the ninth of September of 1978,
    I had in the palm of my hand one small disc
    of the three hundred sixty-one that are needed
    for the astrologic game of Go,
    that other chess of the East.
    It is older than the oldest writing
    and the board is a map of the universe.
    Its black and white variations
    will exhaust time.
    Men can be lost in it
    as in love and day.
    Today, the ninth of September of 1978,
    I, myself, who am ignorant of so many things,
    know that I do not know one more,
    and I thank my poetic inspiration
    for this revelation of a labyrinth
    which will never be mine.
