Imago lacus

Poetika ez hain ttipia

Behin batean Lisboan Baixatik nenbilela
artista ikusi nuen garraxika plazan

manta baten gainean bere opera osoa
erosle baten bila liburuak zeuzkan

nik ez nion erosi poesia ez da arraina
saldu egiten bada ere kaleko azokan

musikaren antzera debalde eskaintzen da
gustuko izan duenak zerbait eman dezan

diziplinaren bidez nortasuna eraikiz
horixe da poetak jasoko duena

poemak idazteak ez zaitu aldatuko
baldin ez badituzu irakurtzen ozen

jendeaurrean mintzatzen ez bazara ausartzen
zer esaten dutena ez baduzu aditzen.
