Apu


The mountain is a profile of a man’s face. 
He lies on his side, looking up:
long nose, strong chin, sloping forehead. 
On a very clear day, the cave halfway up
is visible, forming an eye.

In Peru, the village of Aquas Calientes
is right beside a mountain
with a vast ear on its side ...

Oh, I have had and am having
such a lovely life!


(Apu is the Peruvian word for mountain spirits — to put it very simply.)
