the voices that think me


I am where I was:

I walk behind the murmur,

footsteps within me, heard with my eyes,

the murmur is in the mind, I am my footsteps,

I hear the voices that I think,

the voices that think me as as I think them.

I am the shadow my words cast.

—Octavio Paz
closing lines to A Draft of Shadows
Eliot Weinberger translation
