Advice to Young Poets
by Nicanor Parra Sandoval
loose translation/interpretation by Michael R. Burch

Youngsters,
write however you will
in your preferred style.
Too much blood flowed under the bridge
for me to believe
there’s just one acceptable path.
In poetry everything’s permitted.

i was earth,
and you were homosapien,
you came,
you used,
you destroyed,
and now,
you are probably going to leave.

They were smoking it on the bus,
and I'm not talking about e-cigarettes,
I'm talking about something else.
Hoodie mandems, grimey youngsters
or whatever you want to call them,
they smoked the **** on the bus, man!
In front of the people! - who didn't care.
