Trabajan la sal y el azucar/Construyendo una torre blanca? Pablo Neruda Do salt and sugar work to build a white tower?No, they do not speak to each other.
Salt and pepper are masonsbuildingthe perfect blanka beautiful stark
White on white walls thick--whole cities surrounded withlustrous black roadways—jeweled paths daunt
It is curiosity Senor Neruda that forms the white foundationsthat rise platform after platform floor by floor into air—
Tower as look out.What is seen—the enemy approaching? Or
Lot’s wife dissolving—myth and punishmentelevator and aperture—the eye apparent.
But where are their tools? put aside for dazzle
2.Sugar tastes like sex, surpriseSalt and pepper become sun and water or lobby and floor.
Oh these white towers spiced with story, precariousplatform after platform, floor by floor falling into ruin, reverie---blanco, negro, mustard, sienna, and beryl.

This is spare. This is abstract. This is a block of textbefore it can become a block of text. It is predisposedto being read. It is given to content, the balance bestowedupon an even number of lines. This is formation and belief.This proves the generative quality of death. It is autumnal.This is arrival and departure. This is terse, lateral, style.This plastic toy perspires. It is drawn. It breathes intoa person. It takes the air, and gives it back untouched.
